The midfielder has missed our last three matches with a calf problem but has trained well so far this week and is expected to be included in the squad.
The good news continues with both Fredi Kanoute and Stephane Dalmat fit to play after treatment on groin and back problems respectively. Bobby Zamora has also recovered from a hefty whack on the knee against Palace on Saturday.
On the down side, Dean Richards remains out with a calf problem.
Acting boss David Pleat said this afternoon: "We hope Darren will be fit but we have one or two doubts.
"The good news is that we hope both Dalmat and Kanoute will be fit, they've been having treatment and Bobby Zamora is doing ok, I'm hopeful on that one."
Meanwhile, Christian Ziege continued his comeback in a private friendly against a Luton Town XI - including former Spurs trainees Ian Hillier and Ronnie Henry - at Spurs Lodge today.
Darren Anderton has a chance of featuring in tomorrow's Premiership clash against Birmingham City.
