Harry Redknapp is relishing Thursday's night's friendly with Villarreal at the Lane with his full compliment of players now back together again.

The lads who took part in our US training camp over the past two weeks have returned to the Lodge to link up with the 10 players back from their extended summer break having played at this summer's World Cup in South Africa.

Our game with the La Liga side could be the first opportunity see the full squad in action since the unforgettable end to last season.

Tickets are still available for the 8pm kick off, and our manager is looking forward to the encounter against the former Champions League semi-finalists.

Harry said: "We're all back training together now and we're back in business. We've got Villarreal on Thursday night and that will be a tough game, a good game.

"It will be nice to play at home again in front of our own fans and the opposition will be interesting to see because I'm sure they'll be a good team.

"I don't know too much about Villarreal but I watch all the Spanish football on TV and I know they have good players, so it will be interesting to see how they shape up.

"Hopefully it will be a packed house at the Lane, a great atmosphere as it always is down there and the teams can put on a spectacle for the fans. It should be a good game to come and watch."

Tickets will be available to purchase at turnstiles in the North and East stands (cash only) on the night, or in person at the Ticket Office and online in advance.
