James Constable is available for Walsall when they face League One rivals Swindon Town at the County Ground tonight.
The striker was cup-tied for the weekend's 2-1 FA Cup fourth-round exit at Stoke City, having appeared for Southern League club Chippenham in the same competition, although the 21-year-old can expect a recall for the match against Swindon.
Ian Roper, the defender, has also returned to contention after overcoming hamstring trouble.
But question marks linger over the fitness of Paul Devlin and Paul Merson, the player-manager, who have been struggling to overcome calf and Achilles tendon injuries.
Darren Wrack has yet to regain full fitness after sustaining a broken shin in September.
Iffy Onuora, the Swindon manager, welcomes Trevor Benjamin into the squad tonight.
Benjamin, who was once on loan with West Bromwich Albion, has joined the club until the end of the season from Peterborough United and could make Onuora's starting line-up.
Meanwhile, Shaun O'Hanlon is expected to continue after making his comeback from a knee injury against Southend at the weekend.
Walsall have been knocked out of two cup competitions in the past week - the FA Cup and the LDV Vans Trophy - but there is still a postive attitude at Bescot Stadium, as Kevin James can testify.
He said: "We can look at it in a couple of ways, but we should be taking the positives. Take the second half on Saturday [against Stoke]. I thought we were the better side and, but for a great save by their goalkeeper at the end, we would have taken a Championship outfit to a replay.
"We showed that we can play and create chances and that can only be a good thing in terms of pushing up the League One table.
"But we've said all along that the most important thing is to move up the table and that's still the case. We may have lost the last couple of games but the boys are still confident and full of energy.
"Swindon are down near the bottom so we'll be going there looking for a win and, if we can take the positive aspects of our play into that game, then I've got no doubts that we can win it."
