The wingers both suffered hamstring injuries during last weekend's 1-1 draw with Leicester but the problems are not as bad as first feared and boss Gus Poyet will make late decisions on them.

Bruno is due back in full training after a month out with a calf problem but he will not be risked just yet, so fellow Spaniard Inigo Calderon continues at right-back.

Strikers Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) continue their recoveries from long-term injuries while Ashley Barnes is still suspended.

That means Argentinean frontman Leonardo Ulloa, who has scored eight goals in his last 10 games, continues on his own in attack.
