No new injury doubts for Blues

Last updated : 26 November 2010

Midfielder Craig Gardner's ankle problem is improving although he is not ready to return at Craven Cottage, while number two keeper Maik Taylor is also making good progress with his shoulder problem.

He is likely to be available for the Carling Cup quarter-final with Aston Villa next Wednesday when Ben Foster's current back-up, Colin Doyle, will be cup-tied.

Striker James McFadden remains City's only long-term absentee with his knee ligament injury.
