Teemu Tainio and Calum Davenport are back from injury as our reserves take on Aston Villa at Stevenage Borough FC tonight.

Finnish midfielder Teemu returns after a two-month lay-off following hernia surgery while Calum has been out since picking up a groin injury against MK Dons on October 25.

They are joined in the squad by Reto Ziegler, Philip Ifil and Andy Barcham while Jamie O'Hara and Robert Burch continue their comebacks after long-term injury.

The lads remain unbeaten in the defence of their title and have lost just one of their last 24 league matches stretching back to November last year.

Nevertheless, Clive Allen expects a real test against Villa. "They pushed Manchester United very close for the Northern title last season and you have to respect that," he said. "They represent new opponents for us and that's the intriguing thing."

Squad: Burch, Ifil, Mills, Davenport, Ziegler, McKenna, Tainio, O'Hara, Daniels, Barcham, Dawkins, Lewis, Button, Hutton, Hughton, Archibald-Henville.
