ROBERTO Martinez will be hoping to have Franco Di Santo available after he escaped a major injury on Tuesday night thanks to a nasty tackle by Benoit Assou-Ekotto, who has escaped FA punishment.

Di Santo posted a picture of the injury on his Facebook page yesterday.

Martinez may be able to call on the services of two more players.

Midfielder Momo Diame could return to the side after Senegal tumbled out of the Africa Nations Cup, and David Jones could be in the frame after a calf injury.

On Diame, Martinez added: “He is definitely available for the weekend, and he’s a unique character.

“He just loves playing football, and doesn’t get affected with the interruptions the competition can bring, or anything that has happened off the field.”
