Robin Quaison is nearing full fitness, but Saturday's game comes just a little too soon for the winter recruit from Palermo, although he might sneak onto the bench. Meanwhile, Leon Balogun is back training fully and he is a candidate for the starting XI, even though he is likely to start on the bench.
