Lyon duo Sidney Govou and John Carew have returned to training after injury.
Lyon duo Sidney Govou and John Carew have returned to training and look set to feature in Saturday's eagerly anticipated clash with St Etienne.
Govou missed France's Euro 2008 qualifiers against Scotland and Faroe Islands with a knee injury, but scans have revealed no significant damage.
He is now eager to play against local rivals St Etienne, who are also flying high in Ligue 1.
"It is a match dear to my heart, and I want to play it," he said.
"I would be very disappointed if I couldn't play due to injury."
Fellow striker Carew has not played since being struck down by a muscular problem a month ago, but is back to fitness and could replace the suspended Fred.
