New signing Tom Bennett is expected to be given his full debut as Saddlers skipper tonight in the friendly at Raith Rovers. Sir Ray is struggling with his defence, as central defender Tony Barras was injured in the win against Clyde on Monday.

With any luck the Bescot directors will also have insisted on a sell-on clause as well.
