The Wimbledon manager, Terry Burton, has called on his strikers to find their form in the First Division game at Burnley or face being replaced by a big-money new arrival.

"I am looking to turn the side around from the one that was relegated last year and to do that I need to bring in some top-quality players," he said.

Sheffield Wednesday's Andy Booth will not be moving to Huddersfield in the near future, the Terriers' manager, Steve Bruce, has admitted before their match at Hillsborough.

"The situation is that we haven't yet made a bid. Whether we can afford Andy remains to be seen," Bruce said.

The Barnsley manager, Dave Bassett, has picked the defender Carl Regan for the game at Watford despite last week's sending-off against Norwich for a horrific two-footed challenge. "He took off and when you jump into a challenge like that then the referee is always going to send you off," Bassett said.

The Jamaican defender Darren Moore is set to return for Portsmouth against Grimsby, who will be boosted by thereturn of Tony Gallimore and Stacy Coldicott.

Bolton could turn to the experienced pair of Paul Warhurst and Dean Holdsworth as they travel to West Bromwich Albion, who are without Daryl Burgess.

Tomorrow, Crystal Palace take on their London rivals Queen's Park Rangers. Simon Rodger returns from injury for the Eagles, while Paul Furlong looks set for his QPR debut.
