Veteran midfielder Bryan Hughes is training with the Saddlers as Hutchings casts his eye on the 34 year-old scouser. Hughes has turned out for Wrexham, Birmingham, Charlton and (most recently) Hull in his time and his experience and eye for the game could help Walsall’s youthful midfield.
At the moment things are up in the air as to whether or not he’ll cut the mustard, but if he’s not crocked expect him to be added to the squad some time soon.
Meanwhile, ex Walsall youngster David Davis has come back to Bescot following his defection to the golden boys at Molineux just over a year ago. Hutch has agreed a loan deal for the midfielder for a month, subject to premiership clearance of course. Perhaps having Mick McCarthy across the motorway will help when we’re trying to get our posh local rivals to help us out.
So, two midfielders, at different ends of the age spectrum, to shore up the middle of the park and possibly give us a chance of playing a good game of “We’ll score more than you”. Let’s hope the defence starts to gel soon and make the job a little easier.
