Harry Redknapp said he will wait on the fitness of 'one or two' players with knocks as he prepares the squad for Chelsea on Saturday.

However, the manager revealed that Aaron Lennon was not yet ready to return from his groin injury.

The good news is that the winger took a full part in training on Friday. "It was great to see him out there again and it will be down to Aaron and how he feels," said Harry. "Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later and he'll be back in time to play a part before the end of the season."

Also definitely missing are Niko Kranjcar - CLICK HERE for an update - Vedran Corluka (ankle) and Jermain Jenas (illness). Wilson Palacios serves the second and final match of his two-match suspension.

"JJ had a bit of a jog around today but he's been ill all week," added Harry. "Charlie (Corluka) has a protective boot on now for his ankle. He needed a painkilling injection at Wembley but he could be back before the end of the season."

As we reported earlier, Harry said there was a chance that Ledley King could feature against Chelsea - CLICK HERE...
