After a 5-0 romp last week at Hearts, Harry Redknapp is expected to revert to a number of the youth-team players available to him for tonights second leg, Europa League play-off at White Hart Lane.
The Spurs manager admitted he is willing to utilise a number of acadmey products tonight saying “It’s a great opportunity for them.
“It will be a great experience for them to play in a European game at White Hart Lane and it will give me the chance to have a look at them up against good opposition.”
Harry Kane, Andros Townsend, who made a cameo appearance off the bench last week, and Tom Carroll are all expected to play a part tonight but a number of senior players are still set to remain sidelined.
Tom Huddlestone (ankle) and Luka Modric (hamstring) are both doubts while Ledley King (knee), William Gallas (calf), Danny Rose (ankle), Wilson Palacios (knee), Sandro (knee) and Steven Pienaar (groin) are all set to miss out tonight.
Jermaine Jenas is exptected to return after recovering from an achilles problem that saw him miss last week’s 5-0 win and the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Monday night.
Potential starting XI:
Gomes; Walker, Dawson, Bassong, Corluka; Carroll, Jenas, Huddlestone, Townsend; Kane, Pavlyuchenko
