Walsall have Danny Guthrie available for the Sky Bet League Two home clash with Colchester on Saturday.

The 33-year-old former Liverpool and Newcastle midfielder missed the Saddlers’ 1-1 draw at Forest Green last weekend as he served a suspension.

That was following his late red card in the previous league match – a 2-2 draw at Harrogate.

Darrell Clarke’s men are unbeaten after three games of their league campaign, having also defeated Grimsby 1-0 at the Banks’s Stadium.

Colchester, who have a four-game unbeaten record, have been assessing Callum Harriott ahead of Saturday’s contest.

The winger, after setting up the opener and scoring a penalty, was forced off in the 3-3 draw with Oldham last weekend having picked up a back injury.

Skipper Harry Pell could return after missing the last three league games with a groin problem.

Diaz Wright and Tom Lapslie (both knee) have also been sidelined.
