Pedro Mendes, Michael Dawson and the suspended Thimothee Atouba are the only definite absentees as the squad prepare for the trip to Birmingham on Saturday.

Pedro remains out with his broken toe, while there is more promising news on Michael who is stepping up his training and joining in with the group. Thimothee is suspended for three matches with immediate effect.

"Michael Dawson is going well, he trained with us for 40 minutes on Thursday," reported Martin Jol. "It will still take a couple of weeks, but he is doing well.

"Pedro Mendes is still out with his toe, he needs another two or three weeks. Noureddine Naybet's hamstring is progressing well and he is training."
