As expected John McGreal is a huge doubt for tomorrow's clash with fellow promoted club Manchester City.

With Manu Thetis limping off with an injury in the reserves on Wednesday and Wanyne Brown also injured there could be a recall to the bench for player-coach Tony Mowbray. He has yet to appear this season, but he looks more likely to get a call if a centre-half is required on the bench than youngster Justin Miller.

Town stated on several occasions throughout the summer that Dyer asked for a transfer, something that seems now was not the case.

Town have 14 days to appeal.
