Martin Jol reported that Jermaine Jenas missed Sunday's clash against Wigan because of illness.

The midfielder had struggled to overcome the problem this week but just as things were looking rosier in training on Saturday, fever struck again.

"Jermaine had a high fever on Wednesday and Thursday," explained Martin after the 2-2 draw at the Lane. "We got him on antibiotics and he trained on Saturday because I wanted to push him and he said he felt great.

"But he then had fever again on Saturday night and Sunday morning so I couldn't play him. I couldn't put him on the bench either."
