Martin Jol is confident Jermaine Jenas will recover from an abdominal strain in time for Monday's home clash against Aston Villa.

The midfielder was withdrawn after 70 minutes of Wednesday night's Carling Cup win against Middlesbrough.

"That's the reason we substituted him against Middlesbrough but he should be okay," reported Martin.

Meanwhile, Anthony Gardner is expect to return to training next week after an ankle injury and Paul Stalteri is available again after a heel problem.
