Aaron Lennon has come through a full week of training and is in contention to continue his comeback from a groin injury in Saturday's vital Premier League clash with Bolton at the Lane.

The England winger, who was sidelined for nearly four months, made his first appearance since December as a late substitute in last weekend's defeat at Manchester United.

And although manager Harry Redknapp insists he will remain cautious over rushing the 22-year-old back into full action too quickly, Aaron has suffered no setbacks so far this week.

Ledley King is also set to train on Friday for the first time since Old Trafford, and will be assessed ahead of our encounter with Owen Coyle's men.

Should the skipper come through unscathed, it will leave Harry with a strong squad to choose from with only Vedran Corluka (ankle) a definite absentee alongside longer-term injury victims Niko Kranjcar (ankle), Jonathan Woodgate (groin) and Carlo Cudicini (wrist/pelvis).

In Friday's pre-match press conference, Harry said: "Aaron's had a full week of training but we'll have to assess how he is because we don't want to rush him and risk him breaking down again, so we'll see how he feels. But he's come through the training sessions with no problems.

"Ledley will come out to train for the first time since last weekend and see how he feels, so we're pretty much at full strength. Corluka's still injured but, other than that, we're not too bad."
