Chico Flores has had to admit defeat in his battle to return to fitness in time for Sunday's Capital One Cup final against Bradford.

Gerhard Tremmel will start in goal, while Michu, Wayne Routledge and Angel Rangel will also return after being rested for the thumping defeat at Liverpool last weekend.
