Sylvain Legwinski will not be available due to his persisting groin injury. This current problem is related to previous pelvic area injuries he has had over the years so we have to be particularly careful to make sure the condition clears up completely.

Collins John has been recovering from a hamstring strain sustained against Everton. At this time it is unlikely that he will have made sufficient progress in time to get enough training under his belt ahead of Sunday's game. Particularly with hamstring injuries, it is vital not to send the player back too soon as they run the risk of a re-strain.

Claus Jensen was pulled from the squad on the day of the Blackburn game after coming down with a viral infection. He was still not fully recovered by the middle of the week so his availability will be subject to a fitness test.

Jerome Bonnissel has had a minor surgical procedure in recent days to enhance his recovery which obviously rules him out.
