Football - Butler banned for Saddlers

Walsall are without captain Andy Butler as they look to end their 15-game winless run with victory against Yeovil.

The defender starts a two-match ban after being sent off during the 5-1 defeat away at Coventry last weekend.

But the Saddlers are boosted by the return to fitness of Ben Purkiss. The defender has been sidelined for the last seven games with a hamstring injury but is back in contention for the visit of the Glovers.

Midfielder Florent Cuvelier is not available for the game as he continues to struggle with a hamstring problem of his own that has kept him out since October, but he is nearing a return to fitness.

On-loan goalkeeper Aaron McCarey's deal comes to an end after the game but Walsall are looking into extending his stay.
