The defender has recovered after picking up a slight shin problem at our training camp in France and plays for the first time since our opening friendly win against Bordeaux on July 13.
Development coach Clive Allen reported: Ã¢â‚¬Å“AnthonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s had a few days training now and needs to get back into the games as soon as possible after a slight injury. JJ will also get the opportunity for more match time.Ã¢â‚¬Â
England World Cup squad member Jermaine made his first friendly appearance with a 45-minute stint at Bishop's Stortford last week.
Clive is happy with the Spurs XIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s squadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s progress in pre-season and feels the inclusion of the more senior professionals has had a real impact on the younger lads.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We'll have a mixed squad again at Fisher and that's good for the youngsters,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Clive. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It always seems to raise the bar when the seniors are with them.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It has worked well and it's not just about the game situations, the squad trains together before matches and the atmosphere has been great and the training very competitive.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“They all know how important it is to get their match legs and we've had some good performances and results allied with that.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We've set high standards and we need to maintain that from day one.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The match kicks-off at 7.45pm.
Squad: Forecast, Button, Ifil, C Lee, Gardner, Daniels, Barcham, Jenas, O'Hara, Ziegler, Dawkins, Maghoma, Defendi, Njie, Riley, Lewis, Mills.
Anthony Gardner returns to action alongside Jermaine Jenas in our Spurs XI friendly at Fisher Athletic tonight.
