Heurelho Gomes and Jermaine Jenas are in the frame to face Fulham on Saturday.

Gomes was stretchered off after receiving a kick to the face as he slid out to make a save in Wednesday night's Carling Cup win against Liverpool. After an examination from leading neuro-surgeon Peter Hamlyn, including computer-based neuro-cognitive tests, the keeper was cleared to train on Friday.

JJ is back after a toe injury forced him out of the Liverpool game and that means only Giovani (ankle) is out of the reckoning for Craven Cottage.

Indeed, boss Harry Redknapp believes he's in the perfect situation of having selection headaches all over the pitch.

"I'm in that lovely position of having so many players in good form, it's what managers dream of," he said at Friday's pre-Fulham media briefing.

"Both of the strikers who came in against Liverpool scored twice and Darren Bent is bang in form, Aaron Lennon and Jamie O'Hara were outstanding against Liverpool, Michael Dawson was top-class, Alan Hutton, Gareth Bale - they all did a great job for us."
