Walsall v Doncaster preview
Last Updated: 14/09/18 12:40pm
Walsall boss Dean Keates could re-shuffle his side for Saturday's League One clash with Doncaster.
Keates made a tactical switch for last week's trip to face Barnsley at Oakwell and it paid off in a richly-deserved draw. Kieron Morris and Andy Cook are among those who are pressing for a return to the Saddlers' starting line-up.
But Zeli Ismail faces a late test after the winger missed the trip to Oakwell with a recurrence of a hamstring injury.
Doncaster boss Grant McCann is in position to name an unchanged side as he looks to build on last weekend's win over Luton. Herbie Kane has been passed fit for the trip to the West Midlands despite coming off midway through the match against Hatters.
But Rovers are resigned to losing captain Tommy Rowe for up to 10 weeks with a hamstring injury. Rowe suffered the injury in last week's Checkatrade Trophy match against Newcastle under-21s and tests have revealed the extent of his injury.
Walsall have won each of the last seven league games against Doncaster, their best ever winning run against a single opponent in the clubs' history.
Doncaster's last victory at the Banks's Stadium came on the opening day of the 2012/13 League One season, winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Chris Brown, David Cotterill and Kyle Bennett.
Walsall are unbeaten in their first seven league games (W4 D3), the Saddlers last went on a longer undefeated streak in April 2013 (15 games unbeaten).
Doncaster have failed to score in eight of their last 12 league outings, although they've found the net in four of their seven games this season, netting nine goals.
Doncaster are one of five sides yet score a header in League One this season alongside AFC Wimbledon, Bradford City, Rochdale and Walsall.
