Football - Purkiss concern for Saddlers

Ben Purkiss is a doubt for Walsall's home clash against Notts County.

The defender was forced off just before half-time in last weekend's impressive 2-1 victory at Doncaster nursing a hamstring strain and will be assessed as late as possible ahead of the encounter at the Banks's Stadium.

Richard Taundry could come into contention having failed to feature at the Keepmoat Stadium, despite returning to training last week after a troublesome ankle injury.

Manager Dean Smith boasts no other injury or suspension concerns as the Saddlers aim to consolidate their push for a play-off place.

Smith's side have won eight of their last 10 games to shoot up to ninth in the npower League One table and are within seven points of the top six.
