Both missed the draw at Southampton yesterday.
"Berbatov was very close," stated Jol. "He told me on Monday that he would play but then on Friday he said he didn't know if he wanted to take the risk.
"But both he and Mladen Petric did a test on Sunday in London. If Petric had passed it, then he may have been on the bench, in Berbatov's case he might have started, but it wasn't to be."
