Darren ready to return

Darren Dods was hoping for a recall in tonight's crucial Europa League qualifier with AEK Athens in Greece.

The veteran defender was left out last week and the Arabs have since conceded five times during the two games played in his absence, including four in the shock weekend home defeat to Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

"Last week, I was a bit surprised when the gaffer named the team and I wasn't in it, but it was a tactical thing and these days we keep hearing it's a squad game, so it's one of these things that can happen," he told BBC Sport.

"You accept it, just get on with your job and help the boys who are playing in any way you can, but it goes without saying I want to play in the second leg."
