Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has bemoaned the injury problems at the club while in Dubai this week, but revealed that Alan Hutton looks set to make a return to the side.
Taking a break from training and watching the tennis, Harry told a local newspaper: “We’re trying to finish in the top four and it’s so close. But we’ve got so many players injured, people forget.
“We’ve got Tom Huddlestone, Younes Kaboul, Ledley King, [Jonathan] Woodgate, [Gareth] Bale, [Rafael] Van der Vaart. If you could pick a team of injured players it would be a fantastic team.”
On the subject of Hutton, stories regarding a dressing room bust up broke last week, but Harry claimed his absence has been due to a minor injury.
“Alan had a groin strain, but he’s fit now. I changed it after Fulham. I brought Corluka back in and we went and won four games on the spin, went to Milan and won. But that’s football. Now Charlie [Corluka] is injured, so Alan’s got a chance to get back in the team.”
Whatever the reasons for Hutton’s absence, it looks like he will be back in the starting line up for the Wolves game. In the corresponding home fixture he scored a bizarre goal as he embarked on his last first team run.
