Zoltan Gera, West Bromwich Albion's influential striker, should be back in Birmingham by the weekend.
Diomansy Kamara and Nwankwo Kanu should be back on Saturday. Geoff Horsfield may well remain a Baggies striker instead of moving to Sheffield United on loan and Kevin Campbell, at the age of 36, is back in the form of his life.
It's enough to make Bryan Robson's head spin. What would other Premier League managers give to have such an array of strikers at his disposal?
It all augurs well for the Albion manager who knows his side have a golden opportunity to further pull away from the relegation zone currently hogged by Birmingham City, Portsmouth and Sunderland.
While Gera, who has been missing for much of the season, is some way off playing again, Robson is still relishing his return.
The Hungary international is due back this weekend from his homeland where he has been receiving specialist treatment for a pelvic problem. Albion's medical experts have been closely monitoring the striker's treatment.
"Nick [Worth, Albion's physio] has spoken to the specialist in Hungary who says he is improving again," said Robson. "We have allowed him to stay in Hungary for a few more days to get his treatment and come back probably on Thursday or Friday when we can assess him again.
"He had this problem about four years ago and the specialist in Hungary is the guy who got him right then, so that's why we thought it was right to send him over there. He knows the history of the injury. He has had a double hernia, but now it is a pelvic problem."
Kanu and Kamara, both of whom are trying to steer their countries - Nigeria and Senegal - through the semi-finals of the African Nations Cup this week should return to The Hawthorns on Saturday or sooner, if either is knocked out of the tournament.
Robson is anxious to see both sooner rather than later, but accepts neither will play in the Premiership match at Fulham on Saturday.
"We will miss them for the weekend but they will be back for the Middlesbrough game," he said.
"If they are involved in the final, they are back on the 11th and then they have two weeks before we go into the Middlesbrough game.
"They have done well. Kanu was a big influence for Nigeria and Kamara has looked really sharp and dangerous. I was hoping they were going to get knocked out!" added Robson with only a faint smile.
He is, naturally, none too concerned over the missing internationals. Why should he be with Campbell and Horsfield proving more than capable understudies?
Campbell's strike in the 2-0 defeat of Blackburn last Saturday gave the player a fine 36th birthday present and Robson much-needed breathing space as he ponders his next move in the fight to beat relegation for the second year in a row.
Horsfield has played so well lately that Robson now seems reluctant to allow him to move to Sheffield United on loan.
"They have got great experience," said Robson yesterday. "Geoff started the season great and it was only his hamstring injury that has held him back and Cam's had a problem with his ankle.
"I am not surprised the two are leading the line well. They have great experience and have played at the highest level before."
Robson identified the work rate and enthusiasm of the relative veterans, both on the pitch and in the Albion dressing room. He insisted Camp-bell's relatively advanced years was no hindrance.
"If we were in cup competitions and had loads of games coming up, age might be an issue, but now we know exactly what we need to do from now to the end of the season," he said.
"I have plenty of time to rest him when I want to and we can prepare him in training like a 36-year-old should do.
"His attitude is like a kid around the place. He might be 36 in age but mentally he's like an 18-year-old!"
Robson believes his younger strikers, such as Nathan Ellington, have benefited from watching or playing along side the old hands.
"Hopefully, he can learn from Geoff Horsfield, Kevin Campbell and Kanu when he's back in the club. They have played at the top level because they have a great attitude and their team-mates respect them for that. The younger players have got to learn off the good old pros. That is what you want."
Horsfield is due to meet with the manager this week to thrash out his future and Robson has not ruled out keeping him.
"I thought he was outstanding on Saturday," he said. "He held the ball up well and worked really hard down the channels. Okay, he didn't score a goal but he linked our play up really well. At Charlton, he was our best player.
"I've got to speak to Geoff and the chairman about what our plans are. There is a time limit but we have until February 14. I need to know what he wants to do."
