Martin Jol has no fresh first team worries ahead of the trip to Chelsea but Mounir El Hamdaoui - on loan at Derby - is out for six weeks after groin surgery.

Head Coach Martin is boosted by the return to full training of Andy Reid and Dean Marney after injury and Marney played 30 minutes for the reserves against West Ham on Monday.

Reserve team top scorer Lee Barnard - on the bench against Charlton - remains out with his foot sprain but started jogging this week.

Martin reported on Thursday: "Andy Reid and Dean Marney are both in training, Lee Barnard is still out with his foot and Mounir had a groin operation yesterday and will be out for six weeks."
