Walsall V Oldham at Banks's Stadium : Match Preview

11 August 2017
Nicky Devlin available for Walsall after suspension

Nicky Devlin could make a first league appearance of the season when Walsall look for an opening win against Oldham on Saturday.

Right-back Devlin is now available again after suspension, having sat out last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Bury.

Sheffield United loanee James Wilson could also be back in action after being unavailable for Wednesday's 3-2 Carabao Cup loss to his parent club

Despite back-to-back league and cup defeats, Walsall manager Jon Witney is not pressing any early-season panic buttons as they prepare to face a side who also lost their opening two fixtures.

Gyamfi Kyeremeh is in line to make his Oldham debut in the midlands.

The Belgian winger was signed on Wednesday and has now been granted international clearance enabling him to join John Sheridan's squad for the trip.

Midfielder Ryan Flynn will be assessed again after missing Wednesday's Carabao Cup loss to Burton due to a concern over his Achilles.

Sheridan made two changes in midweek and could mix things up again after two disappointing home defeats to start the season.
