Meanwhile, Rory Delap missed the victory over Everton with a back injury, but he should at least be able to make the bench for this clash.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp will not be able to use the services of David Bentley (knee), Michael Dawson (Achilles), Tom Huddlestone (ankle) or Jermaine Jenas (Achilles).
Several players are doubts for this fixture, with Gareth Bale recovering from a knock, while Jermain Defoe is dealing with a hamstring problem. Ledley King has yet again encountered a knee problem, while Niko Kranjcar is recovering from a thigh injury. Roman Pavlyuchenko was previously ruled out for the game against PAOK, but could be fit for the upcoming game. But it is unlikely that he might be handed a place in the starting lineup.
