Mikele Leigertwood: Returned to action for the U21s

The 31-year-old has not figured this season after having an ankle operation last summer, but he will get a run-out for the club's under-21s against Basingstoke on Thursday night to build up his fitness.

Manager Nigel Adkins told the club website: "Ledge has been a top, top pro - it's been so frustrating for him.

"He's going to get a planned 45 minutes, no more than that. So all being well he will come through that unscathed.

"His attitude has been exemplary. I cannot speak highly enough of him."

Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
