The Tottenham XI game against West Ham at Spurs Lodge this week was notable for the return to action of Ledley King who seems to have got through the full 90 minutes unscathed. Led made his first appearance since the first team’s game at Fulham in October and helped the side to a 3-2 win after going two goals down early on.
This was a strong Spurs side with King and Sebastien Bassong playing alongside loanees such as Harry Kane and Jon Obika who have returned to the club after the end of season for their loan clubs. From the 2-0 deficit, Kane scored twice to level the scores before Paul Jose M’Poku scored the winner.
The game underlined the promise shown by some of the youngsters and it will also be interesting to see if Ledley is risked before the end of the season or whether he’ll be kept right away from the first team in the hope that he will be able to play a part in the 2011-12 campaign.
