Darren Powell is back from suspension and hoping to push his way back into the team for the game against his former club Crystal Palace. Powell was sent off for punching Reading striker Kevin Doyle but had been in tip top form before his ‘rush of blood to the head’.

He said ‘I don’t know if I will get chance to play tomorrow but obviously I would love to be involved for what is a really tasty fixture. I had some good times there and I still have a lot of friends at the club and keep in touch with a few of the players so I would love to figure in this one. It is a big game for us both. Palace are a good side and I am sure we will both be up there at the end of the season. We are not happy just to be going for a play-off place, we are still aiming for automatic promotion – and I know Palace will feel the same.

Adding: ‘Palace are picking up form after a slow start – but so are we, and it should be an interesting game.’

Tickets are on general sale until kick-off (7.45pm tomorrow).
