Anthony Gardner is back in the first team squad for Saturday's top of the table clash against Liverpool.
The big defender hasn't been seen since striking home a last-minute winner against West Ham a month ago.
He's since battled to overcome a thigh problem and now returns after playing in a friendly at Fulham on Tuesday.
Steve Clemence, Darren Anderton, Alton Thelwell and Ledley King also played at Fulham and Clemence in-particularly could join the first team squad again soon.
That only leaves Neil Sullivan (broken thumb), Christian Ziege (calf), Mauricio Taricco (groin) and Ben Thatcher (back) on the injury list.
Squad: Keller, Hirschfeld, Bunjevcevic, Carr, Gardner, Perry, Richards, Doherty, Davies, Etherington, Freund, Poyet, Redknapp, Acimovic, Ferdinand, Iversen, Sheringham, Keane.
