Christian Ziege is also in the squad and as we reported earlier, Paul Konchesky, on loan from Charlton, is available to play.
Jamie Redknapp (knee), Simon Davies (thigh/hip) and Fredi Kanoute (ankle) remain out and caretaker boss David has hinted that he might rest a couple of players during what is a busy spell of three games in six days.
David said earlier today: "Redknapp, Davies and Kanoute are definitely out and both Jon Blondel and Mark Yeates are in the squad.
"We realise the importance of this cup tie but I have one eye on the fact that we played Sunday and Bolton on Saturday will be our third game in six days."
David Pleat has included young midfielders Jonathan Blondel and Mark Yeates in the squad to face West Ham in the Carling Cup on Wednesday night.
