Team news

Harry Redknapp is without key players for Wednesday night's huge North London derby at the Lane.

The manager has ruled out any possible return for both Aaron Lennon (groin) and Jermain Jenas (groin) while Niko Kranjcar joins the injury list after damaging his ankle against Portsmouth on Sunday.

Niko will undergo a scan later this week while Harry reported this morning (Tuesday) that Aaron felt sore after training on Monday.

Wilson Palacios also misses out as he's suspended for two matches after picking up a 10th yellow card in the FA Cup semi-final defeat at Wembley.

"We've a few injuries and we'll have to wait and see who is available," said Harry before training. "There might be an opportunity for one of the younger lads, that's in my mind at the moment. But we'll be okay, whoever plays."

Harry didn't completely rule out Ledley King, who has been out since February 14 with a thigh injury. "He hasn't trained this week, but he's coming out this morning to see how he is."

Younes Kaboul and Kyle Walker return to the fold after being cup-tied on Sunday.
