Victory is a vital in their battle for a top four finish, and they come into the game having shown great resolve to twice come from behind at secure a draw against Chelsea in midweek despite Gareth Bale not being at his best.
They face a side who lost 10 of their first 13 games of 2013, but have since won two in three to get them back into the middle of the table.
The Potters are also unbeaten in their last three Premier League clashes with them (W1 D2), so it’s not going to be easy for the Lilywhites.
However given the importance of a victory I am sure that Andre Villas-Boas will have his men up for the challenge and they are taken to make their class tell and come out on top.
Bale may have failed to get on the scoresheet against Chelsea, but he has scored in 10 of Spurs’s 18 away games this season and looks worth sticking with in the goalscorer markets.
The latter looks particularly good value given that he is as short as 1.73 with other firms.
Another interesting stat is that all four Premier League clashes between these two teams at the Britannia have ended 2-1 (two wins apiece).
That suggests that the 10 on offer with Stan James about a 2-1 win for Spurs in the correct score market is well worth considering.
