Jonathan Woodgate: Big games ahead

Jonathan Woodgate: Big games ahead

The Teessiders head for their big date at Liberty Stadium on Wednesday evening with the former England international having returned from a four-match absence with a calf problem in Saturday's 3-2 victory at Peterborough.

However, with Wolves heading for the Riverside Stadium in the Championship at the weekend, Mowbray is having to consider how best to use the resources at his disposal.

He told the club's official website: "It's hard because Woody doesn't do anything, then trains for a few days and has to come back and play to the level we know he can.

"He makes blocks and interceptions and does things the untrained eye might not see.

"I will have to make a big call for the Capital One Cup tie at Swansea on Wednesday because Wolves is a massive game for us."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
