Jermaine Jenas is in line to make his long awaited return to the first team after an ankle injury.
He said: "I've been in full training now for the last four days and there has been no reaction. I played in a full practice match on Thursday and felt good."
If selected for the FA Cup fourth round against Southend United this Saturday, it will be the midfielder's first taste of action in the competition for over a year.
"We found out last year the FA Cup is a competition where you have got to be on your toes all the time when we were 2-0 up at Leicester and ended up losing," he added.
