Walsall are facing a keeper crisis after Joe Murphy and Richard McKinney were injured.Walsall have just one fit keeper after both Joe Murphy and Richard McKinney suffered injuries.
Player-boss Paul Merson only brought Murphy in on loan earlier this month and he was selected ahead of Mark Paston.
However, Murphy is now out for three weeks after suffering a groin problem.
Merson's problems intensified when his third choice McKinney was stretchered off in a reserve team match.
McKinney has damaged knee ligaments and is expected to be out for around a month.
Merson is now on the look out for another shot-stopper.
"It's the way our luck is going at the moment, and now we need another goalkeeper," said Merson.
"We had three before the weekend but now we've only got one still fit."
