Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is hopeful Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart will be fit to face AC Milan next week.
Bale has been out of action for nearly six weeks with a back injury, while Van der Vaart has been struggling with a calf problem since the first-leg win over Milan last month.
The duo are making good progress with their fitness and Redknapp believes Welsh winger Bale could even be available for this weekend's trip to Wolves.
Asked if Bale would be available for the clash with Milan, Redknapp said: "I'm hoping. He feels OK.
"He has just got to push himself through it now. He feels fine and obviously we'd love him back.
"Rafa is the same. I don't think Rafa will be fit for Sunday but there's a chance he could be fit for Wednesday night with Milan."
Spurs lead Milan 1-0 ahead of their return meeting at White Hart Lane on Wednesday hoping to finish the job off to book their place in the quarter-finals.
