Teemu Tainio, Hossam Ghaly and Mido have travelled to Seville and are back in the squad for Thursday night's UEFA Cup quarter-final, first leg.

Midfielders Teemu and Hossam return after a calf injury and illness respectively while striker Mido also returns after calf trouble.

The biggest blow for Martin Jol is the loss of Tom Huddlestone after the midfielder suffered a medial ligament strain against Reading on Sunday. "He won't be involved for at least three weeks," said Martin.

However, the news was positive on the progress of longer-term injuries Ledley King, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Danny Murphy and Anthony Gardner.

Speaking at Sevilla's Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium before the squad's training session this evening, Martin reported: "Ledley has travelled out with us, he won't be involved but might be available soon.

"Benoit is progressing well after his knee injury, Anthony is off his crutches now and progressing quicker than we expected and Danny is training again and could be involved (at Chelsea) on Saturday. Teemu, Hossam and Mido are all back."
