Harry Redknapp reports that Rafael van der Vaart is a doubt for Saturday's match against Wolves at the Lane.

The playmaker was forced off just after half-time in our Champions League draw at Werder Bremen after suffering with a sore calf muscle.

Rafael trained separately with the fitness coaches on Thursday and will be assessed further between now and kick-off on Saturday.

"Rafa's calf is still a little sore," said Harry before training on Friday. "We'll have a look at him this morning (Friday) but I don't want to risk him breaking down.

"He has a sore calf and you don't want that to turn into a strain or pull. We have to be careful and we don't want to chance him."

Harry also said Luka Modric was still struggling with a leg injury and that Heurelho Gomes is not fit enough for selection.

Jermain Defoe (ankle), Michael Dawson (ankle, knee), Jonathan Woodgate (groin) and Jamie O'Hara (back) are all sidelined.
