The defender required knee surgery back in February, but after nearly nine months out, made his return in October. Eight appearances later, Moore-Taylor has not been seen since November 16 when he came off in the first half against Bolton, citing a head injury. The 25-year-old was also named in the starting 11 against Doncaster but limped out of the warm-up with a knee problem.

After seeing a specialist about his knee revealed no further issues following his return, manager Russell Martin said the defender has been training with the first team again, and is in line for a return to the side as early as tomorrow's game against Coventry City.

"He will be involved in the next game of two," the manager confirmed. "He has shown a great attitude in wanting to get back into the team. He's desperate to stay fit. He's had a really tough year. He was thrown back in and probably did too much. He will be a big boost for us. He could easily come in and help us.

"I picked Jordan for the first couple of games, he came off with a migraine and then he was unsure about his knee. We had it all checked over, and now he's in a much better place physically, training full-time with us which is great. A fit and 100 per cent ready Jordan Moore-Taylor is a big boost for us in the squad."
