From the opposition

Nathan Jones is pleased with his attacking options as he welcomes James Collins back into the squad for the clash at Kenilworth Road.


He said: “We think we’ve got good strength in our squad, we’ve got good options. We’re maybe not as blessed with the budget of others in the division, but we’ve got a really strong squad and I thought Danny [Hylton] has been wonderful I really do.

“He’s missing a goal at the minute, which is what’s catching everyone's eye. But all round performance at the weekend was outstanding.

“We’re in a good place, we’ve got Harry Cornick as well coming back in, so we’re in a decent place. Sam Nombe has different options, so we've got four strikers there who can really impact.”
