Davies closing in

Posted on 30 December 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

David Pleat has revealed this afternoon that Simon Daves could make his long-awaited return in Saturday's FA Cup clash against Crystal Palace.

Our acting boss also said he was 'hopeful' that Darren Anderton will recover from a calf problem in time for the third round tie at the Lane.

Midfielder Simon hasn't played for us since August and has been out with a hip problem since representing Wales in September.

David said: "Simon is progressing well and we're hoping he'll return soon - maybe as early as this weekend.

"Darren Anderton may also be fit again and that's important because we need our experienced midfielders although I'm very happy with the contributions of Rohan Ricketts and John Jackson.

"Stephen Carr is back from suspension and Stephen Kelly, who made a very satisfactory debut on Sunday, will remain in the squad."
