Martin Jol has no additional injury concerns as he prepares for Wednesday night's FA Cup replay against Cardiff City at the Lane.

That means Ledley King (foot), Jermaine Jenas (ankle), Paul Stalteri (hip) and Mido (groin) all remain sidelined for the third round clash at the Lane.

The news continues to be encouraging on Ledley and JJ though, as Martin reported on Tuesday afternoon. "JJ is doing very well in training and will be back hopefully next week. Ledley is also doing very well and we're looking at a week to 10 days.

"Mido is almost fit and Paul Stalteri is also making a fine recovery, so maybe he could be back next week as well. Overall, it's good news."

Meanwhile, Martin gave us an update on the progress of prolific reserve striker Lee Barnard, who has yet to feature this season because of an ankle injury.

"Lee had a very good operation with a specialist in Holland, he's starting to come back now and don't forget about him because he's still a very talented Spurs player.

"He did so well last season and we extended his contract because we really thought he could be a Spurs player. But he's had his injury and you know how it is in football, especially with younger players. He has to keep his head down, work hard, come back and that's exactly what he's doing.

"Hopefully we will see the best of him in the next couple of months because he's a terrific lad and a real goalscorer."
