Ledley King has not recovered in time from his head knock at Sunderland to face Chelsea on Tuesday night. <P class=MsoNormal>Our young star was concussed after a nasty clash of heads with Kevin Kilbane after just five minutes on Saturday. He lasted until the&nbsp&#59;tenth minute when, looking very shaky, he was substituted. <P class=MsoNormal>Boss Glenn Hoddle revealed: &ldquo&#59;Ledley is still very wobbly at the moment and probably needs another few days. The game has come too quickly for him so that&rsquo&#59;s another blow for us. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We have quite a few carrying knocks from the weekend that could do with some time to settle down. We are down to our barest, barest bones.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>Steffen Iversen (concussion) and Les Ferdinand (hamstring) are closest to returning from the lengthy injury list but have not been named in the squad. <P class=MsoNormal><B>Squad:</B> Sullivan, Walker, Carr, Perry, Doherty, Thelwell, Gardner, Young, Sherwood, Clemence, Leonhardsen, Davies, Etherington, Rebrov, Korsten, Piercy, Hillier. <P class=MsoNormal>Chelsea will again be without Frank Leboeuf, who has just resumed training following a groin injury, and Albert Ferrer, who has a calf problem. <P class=MsoNormal>Leboeuf's absence has meant that 20-year-old centre-back John Terry has come back into the team after being dropped for three games last month.<P class=MsoNormal>We are 6/4 to win the game and 28/1 to record another 3-2 victory - <A href="" target=_new>click for details. </A><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
