Roman Pavlyuchenko is a doubt for tomorrow night's (Tuesday, January 26) fixture against Fulham at the Lane.

The Russian striker was back with a bang against Leeds United on Saturday when he scored within four minutes of coming off the bench to fire us into a 2-1 lead before the visitors' late equaliser.

However, Harry Redknapp reported on Monday that Roman had picked up a groin strain. "He's not been able to train today," said Harry. "He's going for a scan to see if there is any damage in there."

Better news saw both Ledley King and Tom Huddlestone back in training on Monday after knee injuries kept them out of Saturday's FA Cup tie.

Aaron Lennon is also due for a scan to check the progress of his groin injury. "We'll see how the injury is heeling," said Harry. "He's closer (to a return), but he's not ready yet.

"We've one or two little knocks but otherwise we're not too bad, it's only really the longer-term injuries that remain out."

Those longer-term injuries are Benoit Assou-Ekotto (hip), Carlo Cudicini (pelvis, groin) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin).
