Anthony Gardner is hopeful of being fit to make his return for Sunday's FA Cup trip to Fulham.The central defender returned to First Team duty when we began the Cup trail in Cardiff and remained in place for four out of five games before picking up a calf injury in the Premiership meeting with Manchester United that saw him miss out against Sheffield United last time out.

"I should be alright for the weekend," he reported. "I thought I had a dead leg after the Man Utd game, but it didn't settle down and it turned out to be a small strain. It is only a minor thing though and I am working hard to try and be alright for Sunday.

"Fingers crossed, at the minute it looks like I will be," he added, before stating his relief that it was only a small setback.

"It was a little bit annoying, but the main thing is it was nothing long-term. These things happen, you play tough games and you can pick up a knock that keeps you out for a game.

"I've been feeling good recently and will hopefully have the chance of playing a few more games."
