Gianfranco Zola has taken his squad to southern Spain for four days, returning to England on Monday, ahead of their Wembley showdown with Crystal Palace a week later for a place in the Barclays Premier League.

"This trip abroad gives us the opportunity to train and to enjoy each other's company," Zola told the club's official website.

"It has been a long season, plus we've had two hard play-off games so far, so we can get some training in and relax in nice surroundings at the same time.

"Our trip will help us prepare for next week where we'll increase our training intensity."
