On 15 July 2013, Lalkovič signed for Walsall on a six-month loan deal.[5] During this period, Lalkovič scored 4 times in 24 appearances. On 6 January 2014, Lalkovič extended his loan with Walsall until the end of the season.[6] On 23 May 2014, Chelsea released Lalkovič and made him available for free transfer.[7][8]

On 25 July 2014, Lalkovič signed a deal with Czech FK Mladá Boleslav.[9] Following the termination of his deal with the side, he completed a free transfer to League One side Barnsley on 8 January 2015, signing an eighteen-month contract.[10] Lalkovič made his Barnsley début coming off the bench in a 2–0 victory against Yeovil Town.[11] Lalkovič made seventeen appearances in total for the Tykes but was permitted to conclude his contract early at the end of the season.[12]
