David Pleat looks like leaving it late before finalising his line-up for Everton with our acting boss having to ponder a couple of doubts before the Good Friday clash.
Jamie Redknapp appears ready to play despite minor surgery on a facial injury after Saturday's loss against Chelsea.
Good news also sees Simon Davies return to the squad after a spell on the sidelines with a shin injury.
Mauricio Taricco and Christian Ziege are doubts with thigh and groin problems respectively.
David said: "We've one or two players who haven't been training, one or two that needed a break and one or two with knocks as well but we'll wait before we make any announcements on the side.
"Mauricio isn't looking too bad and Christian has been to see his surgeon but I'm not ruling either of them out."
David also has one eye on Monday's game against Manchester City at the Lane and added: "It is possible that if we believed two major players weren't going to make it into the squad or the starting line-up for Goodison then we would leave them here for a couple of days training before putting them into the frame on Monday."
