Harrogate boss Simon Weaver will select from an unchanged squad for his side’s home fixture against Walsall.

Weaver named an unchanged starting line-up for the midweek Carabao Cup defeat at West Brom and has no new injury problems.

The same XI started in Town’s match at Southend last week when Weaver’s side marked their first Football League game with a convincing 4-0 win, while goalkeeper James Belshaw (hand) remains the only absentee.

Town will play their first Football League home game at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium as their newly-laid grass pitch at the EnviroVent Stadium is not ready.

Walsall boss Darrell Clarke has reported no new injury concerns following last week’s opening-day home win against Grimsby.

Midfielders Stuart Sinclair and Danny Guthrie are hoping to feature as they work their way back to full fitness following injury, with both starting on the bench last week.

Summer signing Hayden White could be included in the squad. He missed out last week as Cameron Norman was preferred at right-back.

Another recent recruit, Emmanuel Osadebe, is pushing for his first league start.
