Arsenal youngster Lansbury and QPR striker Helguson are due back at their parent clubs after Monday's trip to Ashton Gate.

Boss Malky Mackay hopes to extend midfielder Lansbury's stint from the Gunners until the end of the season but the club are unlikely to be able to afford the wages of Helguson, who has scored five goals since rejoining the Hornets.

Another loanee, Manchester United defender Craig Cathcart, has returned to Old Trafford for knee surgery and faces a spell on the sidelines.

Teenage midfielder Ross Jenkins is Mackay's only other injury absentee, having been been sidelined since October following a back operation.
