Return of the JT

With players starting to drop like flies ahead of a busy run-in, the club have recalled James Tavernier from his loan spell at MK Dons and he’s gone straight into the squad ahead of tomorrow’s game against Swansea.

According to reports, Perchinho has now picked up a slight knock, meaning that Danny Simpson might be required to fill in at centre-back, leaving the right-back spot free for either Tav, or possibly Davide Santon (with Spidermag on the left, or, if he's pushed forward to replace the injured Danny Guthrie, Raylor filling in at full back).

Either way, it means we’ll once again be hoping for commanding performances from Mike Williamson and Tim Krul to keep things in order at the back.

With Tav’s contract due to expire at the end of the season, this represents an excellent opportunity for the player to either win himself a new deal, or put himself in the shop window for a new employer. Hopefully, he’ll seize the chance.
