Paul Ince: Happy his five-match stadium ban has come to an end.

Ince has been watching matches at Sky's Wilmslow studio near Manchester since he was banned for shoving a fourth official, the last one being their 1-1 draw with Birmingham on Saturday.

His only contact with the squad has been via phone calls he was allowed to make to a coach in the stands, with messages then being passed on to assistant boss Alex Rae and first-team coach Steve Thompson.

But he is keen to ensure it is the last time he has to endure the frustration of being away from his team, admitting it had been tough to get his message across from distance.

Ince told Sky Sports News: "This is teaching me to keep my mouth shut.

"It has been weird, it has been strange, but I'd like to thank the Sky team for making it possible for me to watch the five matches here in the studio.

"Without you guys it would have been even worse for me. It's hard when you can't get the messages you want to your players, it's hard when you aren't on the line.

"But you have to learn from your mistakes and move on. I'm looking forward to being on the touchline against Sheffield Wednesday, and it's nice after Ipswich last time, where we lost, to nick a point.

"I hate to think what my phone bill is over the last five games. It's hard because you see something, make a phone call, and then obviously by the time you speak to them, you see something else.

"But today, I thought we played that well I didn't need to be on the phone all the time. I'm glad it's over now and if we can play like we did in the second half we can get three points against Sheffield Wednesday.

"If you can get points away from home and win at home you've got half a chance of doing well this season.

"Second half I thought we were absolutely immense.

"I know we had a couple of scares, with one cleared off the line, but second half we absolutely dominated and we just needed to get that second goal.

"We had chances to do that. You think about changing things and freshening it up but we were so dominant it was just a matter of time before we score, but we didn't get it. We had a couple of skirmishes right at the end but I thought we were by far the better side in the second half, that's for sure."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
