Walsall at full strength and raring to go

Walsall | Sport | Published:

Boss Jon Whitney has confirmed Walsall are free from injury and raring to go as they prepare to take on Sheffield United.

The Saddlers resume their quest for the Championship at Bramall Lane tomorrow, having enjoyed a 13-day break since their last outing against Colchester.

That time has allowed the likes of Adam Chambers and James O'Connor to recover from leg and calf injuries respectively, so Walsall will make the trip with a fully-fit squad.

Whitney said: "Everything over the past fortnight has gone to plan. We had a couple of lads who had a few little niggles but they are now back up and running, so we have got a fully fit squad to pick from.

"That gives me a really nice problem. The players are all fighting for places. We are really looking forward to the game."

Whitney, together with coaches Dean Holden and Neil Cutler, travelled to Southend on Wednesday to see the Blades fall to a 3-1 defeat against Phil Brown's side.

The interim chief added: "I watched their game against Burton, the Crewe game, the Oldham game and I watched them on Wednesday night.

"They are a strong team at home. They are nine points off the play-offs and Nigel Adkins will be disappointed by that.

"They are going to be a danger but I know we are going to be a force to be reckoned with at Bramall Lane."
