Preview: Spurs v Blackpool

Spurs
vs.
Blackpool

White Hart Lane

Saturday 7th May

17.30

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.
