THE TEAM trained slightly later on Thursday after returning from Lisbon and competing in the Eusebio Cup against Benfica in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
After the usual warm-up and stretches, it was a football-based session that included short-sided games as the squad were split into four, a possession session and then a full-sided match.
After the main session, Tom Huddlestone, Niko Kranjcar and Wilson Palacios were put through their paces in a shooting exercise by Joe Jordan and Clive Allen.
Meanwhile, on another pitch, Kevin Bond put on a mini-session with wingers Andros Townsend, Giovani and Danny Rose against full-backs Kyle Walker and Kyle Naughton.
