The Nigerian Football Association has granted Everton duo Yakubu Aiyegbeni and Joseph Yobo permission to delay their departure to the African Cup of Nations.
Yakubu and Yobo were originally due to depart for the tournament in Ghana the day after Saturday's FA Cup encounter against Oldham.
However, the pair will now be available for selection for Tuesday's Carling Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea.
With defender Yobo struggling with a foot injury, David Moyes will be hoping that the 27-year-old recovers in time for the fixture at Stamford Bridge.
