Naughton set for extended run

by Matthew Harris on September 17, 2012

Kyle Naughton was a surprise name on the Tottenham team sheet yesterday afternoon but after making his first Premiership start in a Spurs shirt, the defender is set for a decent run in the first XI.

Naughton was called up after an injury to our regular left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto and it’s been confirmed that BAE is likely to be ruled out of contention for around four weeks.

“Benoit has a small fragment in his knee that makes it swell a lot,” Andre Villas-Boas said after the game.

“He has played through pain in the last couple of games. His knee may have to be washed up and if that happens we are looking at a four-week absence.”

Naughton is normally a right back so are you concerned at all by Benny’s absence or can Kyle cope?
