Jermaine Jenas is a doubt for Friday night's FA Cup third round tie against Wigan at the Lane.

The midfielder will have a late test after picking up a problem with his right calf.

It could mean Harry Redknapp is without two central midfielders as Tom Huddlestone is recovering from the ankle injury he picked up against Fulham on Boxing Day but is not expected to be ready in time for Friday.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto is suspended while Alan Hutton remains out.

Better news sees Roman Pavlyuchenko back in training after missing the trip to West Brom through illness and he's been joined back in training by Kevin-Prince Boateng after illness and Ricardo Rocha after a groin problem.
