Harry Redknapp reports that Aaron Lennon and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are out of the frame for our FA Cup third round tie against Peterborough on Saturday.

Flying winger Aaron picked up a groin injury in Monday's 2-0 win against West Ham while full-back Benoit was substituted late in that game with a hip problem.

Speaking after training on Thursday, Harry hinted that he'll make a few changes for the encounter at the Lane. "The FA Cup is very important for us, it's another big game and we want to keep winning," he said.

"I'll give one or two of the lads who haven't played as much recently a game because they've all worked hard and they will be ready to play. Hopefully we'll turn in another terrific performance."

Jonathan Woodgate (groin) and Carlo Cudicini (pelvis, wrist) continue their rehabilitation.
