Acting boss David Pleat confirmed this afternoon that midfielder Simon is back in the squad after recovering from the hip problem that has kept him out since September.
But he also revealed that defender Dean has picked up a calf strain and misses the third round encounter.
He joins Darren Anderton (calf), Christian Ziege, Jamie Redknapp, Jon Blondel (all knee) on the sidelines.
Better news sees Stephen Carr return from suspension.
"Simon has trained well again and is in the squad," said David at Spurs Lodge.
"Dean Richards is out with a calf strain, Christian is out, he's training fine but he's been ill this week. Anderton remains out, Redknapp and Blondel are also out."
Simon Davies returns but Dean Richards is out of tomorrow's FA Cup clash against Crystal Palace.
