Bolton Wanderers entertain Tottenham on Saturday afternoon looking for the win that would take them over the magical 40-point barrier and almost certainly guarantee them Premiership football at the Reebok Stadium next season.
Sam Allardyce's preparations for the game were somewhat disrupted by the absence of Per Frandsen, Youri Djorkaeff and Jussi Jaaskelainen on international duty. However the Trotters goalkeeper pulled out of the Finland squad to face Macedonia in midweek due to a slight back strain, but he should be fit enough to face Tottenham on Saturday afternoon.
Jaaskelainen has had some unhappy memories of playing Spurs this season after conceding 13 goals in three visits to White Hart Lane, as the Trotters crashed out of both domestic cups at the hands of Glenn Hoddle's team. But Wanderers are a much different proposition these days and with the Londoners winning only once at Bolton in the last 23 years it will be a tall order for the visitors.
Glenn Hoddle will hope his team can improve upon their 39% shooting accuracy next season, which is currently the lowest ratio in the top-flight - and something that, it may be argued has cost Spurs' chances of a European place this season.
The last time the north Londoners played in European competition was against Kaiserslautern in November 1999 when they were dumped out of the UEFA Cup by the German outfit and in particular current Bolton favourite Youri Djorkaeff.
The French World Cup winner was instrumental in Spurs' defeat that night, setting up two late goals to help Kaiserslautern progress and the midfield star is likely to be a key figure on Saturday.
