Allen made 29 appearances for the Saddlers during his debut campaign, after joining his home town club from Forest Green in 2022.

He was handed a new deal in the summer, and his versatility has served as a crucial asset this season.

The Walsall-born 23-year-old has started Saddlers’ last three league matches, including a pair of appearances at centre-back.

Although he has adopted a more defensive role of late, Allen still has his sights set on breaking his Walsall duck.

Allen said: “That’s been on my mind for a while to get my first goal for this club in front of people that I know and my family.

“I know how much this club means to people and getting my first goal will be a big achievement for me.”
