Robbie Keane trained on Friday and is in the squad for our Premiership opener at Bolton.

The Irish striker and last season's top scorer is back from the thigh strain he suffered in training last week that ruled him out of our final pre-season friendly against Real Sociedad.

Teemu Tainio is recovering well from an ankle knock but misses out and skipper Ledley King (knee) remains on the sidelines.

Martin said: "Teemu is probably fit enough to come into consideration but we will wait until Tuesday (Sheffield United at the Lane) because he will then be fully fit.

"As you know Ledley King is still out and needs another couple of weeks and for the rest we are fine."
