Harry Redknapp has a number of injuries to contend with as he prepares for Tuesday night's Carling Cup clash against Everton.

Harry Redknapp has a number of injuries to contend with as he prepares for Tuesday night's Carling Cup clash against Everton.

Jonathan Woodgate (head injury) and Aaron Lennon (ankle) have joined a missing list that already included Ledley King (illness/knee), Luka Modric (fractured fibula) and Giovani dos Santos (ankle).

Add to that striker Jermain Defoe, who serves the second of his three-match suspension and Niko Kranjcar, who is cup-tied having played in the competition for Portsmouth.

‘Woody' was forced off just 15 minutes into his return against Stoke on Saturday after a clash of heads with James Beattie.

Harry reported earlier on Monday: "Jonathan took a bad blow to the head and he's gone for a scan today to make sure he hasn't fractured his cheekbone. His face is very swollen and we have to make sure he's okay. Obviously he's not available.

"Aaron has also gone for a scan to see what damage he's done to his ankle, hopefully it's not to bad and he'll recover."

"We've one or two more out as well - Ledley's still not fit, Luka and Gio - and Jermain is suspended."

Harry added that he was hopeful Ledley would be fit for Saturday's derby at Arsenal.
