The striker completes his three-match ban after being sent off during the club's 5-1 defeat at MK Dons.
But U's boss Joe Dunne is boosted by the return of midfielder Marcus Bean and defender Magnus Okuonghae from their bans. The duo both missed the 1-0 loss at Bournemouth after picking up their fifth cautions of the campaign the week before.
They joined Brian Wilson, who is back in contention after illness, in the club's 8-0 Essex Senior Cup win over Brentwood Town in midweek and should be involved at Walsall.
Defender Matt Heath played 45 minutes in the tie on his comeback from a calf injury and could be named in the first-team squad for the first time since October.
The U's are looking to avoid a fifth consecutive defeat.
