At the start of the week, injury concerns were held over from Sunday’s game at Stevenage after Adebayor, Modric and BAE were all late withdrawals. At the time, Harry was concerned for this weekend’s match but as the week has progressed, many of the doubts seem to have eased.
Firstly, Rafael van der Vaart announced that he was winning his own fitness race before Ade tweeted that he also expected to return. Modric was also expected to return after suffering with flu and now the picture is complete with news that Benoit is also ready to take his usual place in the starting XI.
The left back underwent a minor groin operation but has completed several light training session and is fully expected to be fit.
That still leaves other questions over the likes of Sandro and Ledley King but at least it seems that Spurs are approaching somewhere near full strength.
