Mido is back from injury and available for Sunday's big Premiership derby match against West Ham at the Lane.

The Egyptian striker suffered a thigh problem after the win against Portsmouth and has missed our last two matches against Aston Villa and Besiktas.

"Mido has trained and is fit for selection," reported Martin after training on Saturday morning. "Everyone else is fine after Besiktas."

Didier Zokora misses out as he recovers from a mild bout of malaria and is joined on the sidelines by Steed Malbranque and Teemu Tainio (both hernia).

"Steed Malbranque is training well and hopefully he'll be back within two weeks," added Martin.
