They have experienced and talented Icelandic international Aron Gunnarson who’s been at the club since 2011. Meanwhile, Joe Ralls is a key part of their midfield after making 37 appearances in the Championship last season and scoring seven goals and making five assists. Canadian winger Junior Hoilett is a dangerous player going forward after scoring nine goals and making 11 assists last season in 46 Championship appearances.
However, the arrival of the likes of Harry Arter and Victor Camarasa have not helped their cause this season.
