Chair­man and owner Mel Mor­ris no­ti­fied the play­ers the pro­posed trip was can­celled af­ter Tues­day night’s 1-1 draw with Read­ing – their third Cham­pi­onship game with­out a win – lead­ing one na­tional news­pa­per to sug­gest it was a pun­ish­ment.

“It is what we felt was the ap­pro­pri­ate thing to do. It wasn’t booked, it was a pro­posal, some­thing we con­sid­ered do­ing,” said Cle­ment.

“It was felt af­ter re­cent per­for­mances, it wasn’t an ap­pro­pri­ate time to go.”
