The fitness of Dimitar Berbatov, Mido and Aaron Lennon will be assessed ahead of the visit of Liverpool to the Lane on Saturday.Paul Stalteri, Robbie Keane (both knee), Jermaine Jenas and Teemu Tainio (both ankle) remain absent, although Martin Jol reported that an FA Cup return for Robbie could be on the cards.

"We've got a few doubts that we hope will be okay tomorrow," said Martin after training on Friday. "Dimitar has felt a bit ill and we will wait and see, while Michael Dawson was suffering with a knock but has trained and looks fine.

"Jermaine Jenas is still out, he ran yesterday so he will not be ready for another two or three weeks, Robbie Keane is progressing well and he will maybe be available for the Cardiff game.

"Aaron Lennon has missed four games and we will make an assessment on him. Mido is still a doubt for us, but hopefully he will be in the squad. Paul Stalteri and Teemu Tainio are also out."
