Harry Redknapp will have a few players missing for Wednesday night's FA Cup replay against Bolton.

Ledley King (thigh), Aaron Lennon (groin) and Jermaine Jenas (groin) will sit it out alongside cup-tied pair Younes Kaboul and Kyle Walker.

Harry reported that winger Aaron had suffered a 'bit of a setback' on his road to recovery following fresh scans on his injured groin. "He's worked hard on the training ground every day, so it's the last thing he wanted," said Harry. "But he'll get on with it and I'm sure he'll come back as good as ever." Further specialist advice is being sought on how best to rehabilitate Aaron's injury.

Better news sees Benoit Assou-Ekotto back in full training after suffering a hip injury in December.

Longer-term injuries Carlo Cudicini (pelvis, wrist) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) remain out but again, there is good news as goalkeeper Carlo has started ball work this week.
