Aaron Lennon is out of Wednesday night’s Carling Cup quarter-final against Southend United at White Hart Lane.

The winger hasn’t recovered in time after missing Sunday’s win at Manchester City with inflammation on his knee.

Hossam Ghaly is also sidelined, Didier Zokora is suspended while Jermaine Jenas and Robbie Keane are recovering from ankle and knee injuries respectively.

Martin Jol reported on Tuesday afternoon: “Aaron is still not 100 per cent so he will be out, he’s not quite fit enough to be in the squad tomorrow and we’ll have another look on Friday for the Newcastle game.

“Hossam Ghaly had a dead leg at Manchester City and a knock on his back, so he’s not in the squad. Robbie Keane is doing well but both he and Jermaine Jenas are both out for another couple of weeks.

“Didier Zokora is also out suspended, he’ll be back in consideration for Newcastle.” Michael Dawson returns after a one-match ban.
