MARTIN Jol is hopeful Mark Schwarzer will overcome a back problem in time for the Europa League showdown.
The Fulham keeper picked up the problem in Saturday's defeat at Swansea, but is due to be assessed this afternoon ahead of the Group K clash.
Jol is boosted by the return of Chris Baird and Damien Duff, while the boss also confirmed star striker Bobby Zamora would be back in the squad after missing the trip to Wales.
Fellow frontman Andy Johnson is suspended, Bryan Ruiz is unavailable, while Danny Murphy (ankle) and Steve Sidwell (hernia) have failed to recover in time.
