The in-form winger missed Sunday’s win at Manchester City after suffering slight inflammation in his knee.
Martin reported at Eastlands: “He had an operation earlier in the season and the inflammation came up again, so it was better for us to rest him. It's something that comes and goes. Hopefully he’ll be fit for selection on Wednesday, if not, we’ll have to wait another week.”
Martin Jol hasn't ruled out the chance of Aaron Lennon being fit for Wednesday night's Carling Cup quarter-final against Southend United.
