Hoddle is looking at changes after the 3 second half subs from Saturday gave him ‘food for thought’. Anderton, Mark Davies and George Ndah all came on and Hoddle said ‘In the second half we brought on three subs and played a lot better but we lost the game in the first half.’

Kenny Miller has been linked to a move to AS Roma if their transfer embargo is lifted. His substitution on Saturday may well give him even more reason to walk? He is available on a free next summer but the club might cash in on him in January when he can still command a fee.

Kenny Miller has blamed himself for Scotland not qualifying for the World Cup having missed a chance against Belarus. ‘I just remember going through, trying to put it to one side but it went well wide. It was criminal not to hit the target, I’m disappointed with myself for that.’

Former Scotland striker Colin Stein described Wolves frontman Kenny Miller’s lone attacking role for his country as a ‘thankless task’.

Hoddle refuses to admit our title challenge is over despite us being 14 points behind Sheffield Utd. He said ‘Its not healthy being this far behind United, but we wont give up chasing. Theres a long way to go.’

Anderton is close to a starting place after fighting back from yet another injury. Paul Ince isn’t so lucky and is expected to miss the next game.

Hoddle says the International games have hampered his preparations for the Championship campaign.
