Boss Dean Smith today revealed he was set for talks with Sam Mantom and Craig Westcarr over their Walsall futures.
The on-loan duo were due to return to their parent clubs today after playing in last night’s 2-0 win over Portsmouth.
Albion loanee Mantom and Chesterfield striker Westcarr have helped the Saddlers to four wins in their last five games to shoot them up to 14th in League One.
And Smith will now consider their futures over the weekend.
He said: “I’m going to speak to both of them. I’ll have a chat with them, we like them both, but we’ll have a chat and see what they are looking to do as well.
“Both of them have done well and it’s coincided with a decent run of form where they’ve played well and helped us.
“I never really wanted to talk to them before the game. We’ve had a really busy period and I didn’t want to take their concentration off the games they were playing but we can talk now.”
Mantom has made 10 appearances, scoring once, while Westcarr has featured seven times since joining in November.
Mantom admitted on Thursday he feels he has no future at Albion and Westcarr is in limbo at League Two Chesterfield.
The pair would stay given the chance and Smith’s transfer pot was boosted as he will take a slice of the £30,000 earned from last night’s televised Sky clash.
First-half goals from Febian Brandy and Will Grigg won it for the Saddlers as they moved 14 points away from the bottom four. It marked Smith’s two years in charge and he admitted the milestone almost passed him by.
“I didn’t know until someone told me,” he said, with the Saddlers not playing again until next Sunday’s trip to Preston.
“I’m glad I didn’t remember it though because I don’t normally remember my wedding anniversary.
“It was good. We’ve had five games in 13 days and to win four of them is magnificent for the players.
“But we won’t look too far ahead. Every game in this league is tough. We make sure we’re consistent in our performances and how we prepare and we’re getting the rewards now.
“We’ve got a little break now. They’ll get a little rest.”Subscribe to our Newsletter
