Both can play some part in the remainder of the campaign, although MON is not rushing either by giving expected return dates. Certainly Burnley’s visit to Villa Park on Sunday will be too soon for them.
O'Neill said: ‘Both are making really good progress. They are ahead of schedule.
‘It is still going to be a fairly lengthy time but Nigel is more upbeat than before - the operation on the ankle has been successful and he says himself he is a pretty quick healer.
‘It was an old injury from his time at West Ham. It's one of those that now in retrospect it has been great news to have found out about, because it might have been affecting other parts of him. He is making good progress and so is Marlon.’
