There is a chance that he could be ready for the Wednesday game and they will know that on Monday.[LNB]"If he's not fit then hopefully he will be able to come back to England and will possibly have a chance to be available for the Sheffield United match.[LNB]"If he stays with Mexico then he will not be getting back to England until Friday and it will then be a case of seeing how quickly he has recovered from the trip and whether there has been any reaction to the injury."[LNB][LNB]
