Swindon V Walsall at County Ground - Match Preview

Mason pushing for Swindon start

Ryan Mason is pushing for a start as in-form Swindon welcome Walsall.

The former Tottenham man returned to Robins action for the first time since September 14 in Friday night's 2-0 victory over Notts County and he will hope to get the nod from the start.

Meanwhile, Nathan Thompson has been passed fit after being replaced at half-time due to illness but former Exeter duo Ryan Harley and Troy Archibald-Henville remain sidelined.

They are joined in the treatment room by Tijane Reis and Alex Smith who will both miss out as Mark Cooper's men look for their fifth straight victory.

Walsall boss Dean Smith has a fully-fit squad to choose from for the trip.

Smith looks likely to stick with the same XI that helped the Saddlers to their first win in five matches at the weekend but has plenty of options available to him should he wish to make any changes.

On-loan Chelsea forward Milan Lalkovic and Troy Hewitt are available to come into Walsall's attack if the manager chooses to shuffle his pack.

Romaine Sawyers marked his first start in almost a month with a goal against Stevenage on Saturday and is expected to keep his place in the side.
