"I don't know if Saturday will come too quickly but they will be available in the not too distant future," added O'Neill. "Gareth irritated a groin strain which he has been carrying for a few weeks. "We have had tests done and it hasn't come out as really bad but, if it continues to be a problem, it might be something we look at. "He will still be putting himself forward for the game on Saturday which is good news." O'Neill is still without Norwegian international striker John Carew with back and leg injuries, while Wilfred Bouma remains a long-term absentee.
