Tuesday night saw Jonny Williams return to the Cardiff City Stadium where he helped Wales qualify for Euro 2016 in October as he helped his Nottingham Forest side to a 1-1 draw against the Bluebirds in the Championship.
Oliver Burke had given Forest the lead with a ninth minute strike before Aaron Gunnarsson equalised four minutes later, with Williams playing 71 minutes before being substituted. The point leaves Dougie Freedman’s side 14th in the table, 10 points behind the play-off places.
Right in contention for one of those spots are Sheffield Wednesday, whom Jack Hunt was an unused substitute for in their 1-0 defeat to league leaders Middlesbrough on Monday. The right-back had played the full 90 minutes two days earlier on Boxing Day as the Owls ran out 3-0 victors over Birmingham City.
After featuring for Palace’s development team in their recent 3-1 defeat to Queens Park Rangers, Ryan Inniss has returned to Port Vale after recovering from his shoulder injury, and he could be adding to his nine appearances in Staffordshire again soon. Elsewhere in League One, Jerome Binnom-Williams missed Burton Albion’s 1-0 win against Swindon Town on Monday which leaves them level on points with Walsall at the top of the table.
Sullay Kaikai’s time at Shrewsbury Town has come to an end after he was recalled last week, with the winger playing 17 times in Shropshire and scoring five goals. He joins the injured Keshi Anderson and Chris Kettings back at Palace, with Jake Gray, Hiram Boateng and Christian Scales’ loan stints all due to expire on the 2nd January.
Gray was left frustrated on Boxing Day as Hartlepool United’s home game with Notts County was postponed due to the extremely wet weather in the north of England over Christmas, with Boateng once again missing through injury as Plymouth Argyle maintained their three point lead at the top of League Two.
