Squad boost for Harry

Tim Sherwood has been out for six weeks after suffering an ear infection, but completed a run-out in a 0-0 draw at Bashley followed by the full 90 minutes against Tottenham's reserves and is hopeful of being back to full fitness soon. Redknapp commented: "Tim's had a rough old time of late but hopefully he'll be back before long to give us another option."

Meanwhile it has been revealed that Svetoslav Todorov's knee injury is not as bad as first feared - it is only torn and does not need to be rebuilt. The upshot of this is that Toddy has an excellent chance of being fit before the end of the season.

Jason Roberts, on loan from West Bromwich Albion, scored two goals to give Harry a mild selection headache next week, whilst Vincent Pericard was also on the scoresheet.
