Anthony Gardner has picked up an ankle injury in training and misses out on our return to European competition.

However, left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto is available after recovering from the knee injury that has ruled him out since February.

"Most of the players are fit and available," reported Martin at his pre-match media briefing on Wednesday afternoon. "Benoit is back again and we're only without Anthony Gardner, who has an ankle injury and Ledley King."
