Purse returns for suspended Loovens

Last updated : 12 September 2006 By Michael Morris
Thankfully Darren Purse has completed his suspension and will return tonight to join Roger Johnson in the centre of defence.

Kerrea Gilbert is set to play despite having three teeth knocked out of him at Preston. The City full back was clattered on more than one occasion.

'The boy has lost three teeth. He's not feeling the best right now," said Dave Jones after the match.

'The tackles and challenges were flying in.'

On Glenn's sending off Jones said

'Glenn was punished for being stronger than their boy. It was shoulder to shoulder.

'Anywhere else on the pitch, as the referee admitted to Terry Burton after the game, it would not even have been a booking.'
