Andros Townsend has yet to feature in the league under Tim Sherwood after suffering a hamstring injury in Spurs’ Capital One Cup defeat to West Ham last month. It’s been a breakthrough season for the winger but he will have been relieved to have come through yesterday’s under 21 game unscathed and should now be challenging for a starting slot at Swansea this weekend.
Andros scored one of the goals in yesterday’s 4-1 victory – Souleymane Coulibaly had opened the scoring before Kenny McEvoy and Harry Kane made it 4-0 before half time.
We’ve all discussed Townsend’s contribution at great length here and with a new coach in charge, no-one can second guess what Tim Sherwood thinks of the player. However, after a lacklustre game at White Hart Lane on Saturday, should the winger come straight back in – assuming he is 100%?
