Saturday 20 April 1996
Trollope is set to start a league game for the first time since October because Darryl Powell has an injured hamstring. Van der Laan turned an ankle in training and Flynn and Sturridge are suspended. Ward and Willems also come into consideration. The Birmingham striker Peschisolido and midfielder Hunt are poised to return to the starting line-up.
Grimsby v Sheffield United
Livingstone could get the nod ahead of Woods to partner former Sheffield United man Mendonca in the Grimsby attack. Sheffield United have an injury worry over Nilsen, although striker Taylor is set to return.
Leicester v Huddersfield
Defender Walsh is back after a one-match ban but striker Roberts is still sidelined with a rib injury. Huddersfield midfield duo Bullock and Ward have recovered from chest infections.
Luton v Watford
Luton welcome back captain Davis but striker Grant is struggling with an ankle ligament injury, with Tomlinson and Taylor standing by if he fails a fitness test. Watford have four central defenders ruled out so trainees Ward and Rooney are called up.
Millwall v Oldham
Manager Nicholl, who last played a league match in March 1986, could be a Millwall substitute. They are missing defenders Stevens, Thatcher, Lavin and Van Blerk and striker Dolby through bans while Kulkov, Webber and Fuchs are injured. Oldham have to play goalkeeper Hallworth because potential replacements have worse injuries.
Norwich v West Brom
Winger O'Neill is Norwich's only absentee while Johnson could come in for a first appearance in two months. West Bromwich manager Buckley is likely to name an unchanged side.
Port Vale v Tranmere
Manager Rudge plans to give some of Port Vale's youngsters a run-out, with Talbot, goalkeeper Van Heusden, Lawton, Corden and Eyre set to play. Tranmere defender Rodgers is suspended, so player-manager Aldridge could turn to Morgan.
Portsmouth v Barnsley
Defenders Gittens and Russell and midfielder Igoe come into contention for Portsmouth, who are without Simpson, Durnin and Thomson. Barnsley have Redfearn suspended and injury worries over Shirtliff and Payton. Dutch teenager Ten Heuval could make his debut.
Reading v Charlton
Player-manager Gooding is set to return in place of Nogan. Sweeper Holsgrove should also be back after a bout of flu. Charlton have Bowyer and Rufus back after suspension. Midfielder Linger is also available after a ban.
Southend v Ipswich
Left-back Stimson returns after a one-match ban for Southend, who have also included 18-year-old defender Morrish in their squad. Ipswich are without defenders Mowbray, Wark, Taricco, Uhlenbeek and Vaughan through injuries and suspension. Striker Mathie is back after two games out while midfielder Milton is fit again after a groin strain.
Wolves v Crystal Palace
Midfielder Atkins is set to return for Wolves but they are likely to be without injured midfielder Osborn while Smith and Ferguson are suspended. Midfielder Pitcher returns for Palace but they are without Houghton. Ndah is fit again after injury, but Dyer is expected to retain his midfield place.
Sunderland v Stoke
Striker Stewart serves a one-match ban as the leaders seek the one point needed to guarantee a Premiership place next season. He will be replaced by Howey. Stoke will stick by Whittle rather than risk Cranson but Dreyer could come in for Potter in defence.
