Walsall have switched to a back-four in the previous two matches, and have collected four points, and conceded just once. The Saddlers have not conceded in open play over the process.

"In open play we haven't conceded in the last two so that's positive from that point of view," Sadler said.

"You know what it's like though. A great experience for them. There were loads of good challenges for them. It's about resting, recovering and repeating.

"I recruited with the view of having a couple of formations in mind. We can use both of them. The way I made sure that we coached it was that we were familiar with both.
