Spurs vs. Blackpool

White Hart Lane

Saturday 7th May


Preview: Spurs v Blackpool

By the time Blackpool kick off against Spurs this evening, they could be as low as 19th in the table. Worst case scenario? Yes, but also a reflection on the situation we find ourselves in with three games to go.

We beat Spurs 3-1 at Bloomfield Road earlier in the season; a repeat today would be tremendous.

Vital Quotes:

Ian Holloway on speculation linking him to a move away from Bloomfield Road:

'Every day I've been at this football club I've tried to treasure it and polish the badge, and I haven't finished polishing yet.'

Spurs Team News:

Spurs are without Tom Huddlestone and Benoit Assou-Ekotto, and are also likely to be without Vedran Corluka - all due to injury.

They join long term absentees Wilson Palacios, Alan Hutton, Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate on the sidelines.

Player to watch: Gareth Bale

Hard to select just one player, but the thought of Bale coming up against Neal Eardley gives me jitters...

Blackpool Team News:

Blackpool have no injury concerns, although David Carney remains a long term absentee.

Player to watch: Charlie Adam

Spurs made a last ditch attempt to sign him in January, hopefully Charlie will show why today.

Match Facts & Stats
