Spurs welcome back Steven Pienaar and William Gallas for Sunday’s clash against QPR while it’s also felt that Brazilian Sandro is fit enough to make a claim for a place in the starting line up.
“William is not going to train today, but he’s trained all week and will train again tomorrow,” said Harry Redknapp early on Friday morning.
“He hasn’t played a game since last season and we have to see how he is. He could be involved.
“Steven is on the way back, which is good. He feels a lot better.
“Sandro has had a problem as well. He came on against Arsenal, did great for us, but his calf flared up. He’s had another scan, the scan looks okay, he feels okay and he could be available at the weekend as well.”
There was good news as well with Ledley King who doesn’t look likely to be involved on Sunday but could be on course for a return against Fulham next week.
“Ledley is improving. We’ll wait to see how he is tomorrow and you never know with Ledley, but it doesn’t look like he’s too far away,” Harry added.
With Brad Friedel in goal, the only question defensively is whether Harry starts with Gallas ahead of Bassong. That’s assuming that he doesn’t spring another surprise and start with Ledley.
In midfield, Pienaar looks unlikely to dislodge anyone while Sandro’s only chance of a place in the starting XI could be at the expense of Aaron Lennon.
In attack, VDV looks un-droppable after his five goals in four games so will probably tuck in behind Adebayor again with JD pressing for a start ahead of the on-loan striker.
