Jermain Defoe could be fit to face Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium tomorrow after suffering dislocated fingers last weekend against Burnley.

The striker was forced off early in the second half of our 5-0 win, but has trained this week wearing a protective cast.

In today's press conference, manager Harry Redknapp said: "Jermain has looked ok and trained fine today, so hopefully he could be ok but we will see tomorrow."

Meanwhile, Harry also revealed that Luka Modric has stepped up his recovery from a fractured fibula after his protective boot was removed this week.

Ledley King (groin), Roman Pavlyuchenko (Achilles), and Jonathan Woodgate are also continuing their recoveries.

However, the news is not so positive on Giovani Dos Santos after the ankle injury he picked up in our Carling Cup win at Preston last week.

Harry added: "He is going to be out for a good few weeks unfortunately. He came back and was in good form and showed a good attitude and looked nice and sharp so this is a setback."
