Only Dean Bowditch, who is making good progress after a groin operation and Gavin Williams who is recovering slowly but steadily, will miss the trip to the midlands that includes games against Burton Albion on Tuesday and Thursday.

Thadani said: “This is all about giving the players the chance to get even better. We will make use of the outstanding facilities but it will be about the mental approach to fitness and nutrition as the physical side. Experts in the field of dehydration and nutrition will give talks in what will be varied week.

“The players' attitude towards the new approach has been very good, certainly the difference has been noticeable and we have been impressed at how they have worked.

“This week will also give the coaches a chance to work on the footballing side with the players.”
