Gunnar back to shoot down Villa!

Icelander Gunnarsson has been out since being forced off against Blackpool the weekend before last, and has missed games against West Brom and Sheffield Wednesday. However he has returned to training and will be back for the FA Cup quarter final against Aston Villa.


He is likely to go straight back into the team with Brian McDermott reverting to a 4-2-3-1 formation oncemore, and he will be joined in the starting line up by Matt Mills.


The defender was concussed after a clash of heads in the West Brom game and missed Saturdays fine win over Sheffield Wednesday, but he will be back this weekend. He will take the place of the cup tied Zurab Kizhanishvili.


Kalifa Cisse and Shane Long also return from injury and suspension but neither is likely to start, and they will hope to be included from the bench.

Going to need him on Sunday, him and Tabb will have a lot of work to do in the middle against the likes of Milner.
