Nigeria strikers Peter Odemwingie and Obafemi Martins are doubtful for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier with Ethiopia on Sunday.

Martins of Birmingham City has a groin injury and West Brom's Odemwingie has a thigh problem.

Odemwingie has been doing some light training but Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia coach doubts he will play.

"To get those two guys to play will be a miracle, but we have enough players," Siasia said.

Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has already been ruled out of the game.

Nigeria are second in Group B of Nations Cup qualifying, three points behind Guinea.

They have one win and one defeat from their campaign so far.

The match against Ethiopia in Abuja on Sunday will be Siasia's first competitive game in charge.
