Ledley on return

Posted on 19 August 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).

Ledley King is happy that he has realised his target of featuring in tonight's reserve game against Portsmouth at Havant and Waterlooville.

The defender sustained an ankle injury in our first pre-season outing against Stevenage Borough and is now ready to make his claim for a first team return by putting on a good show for Colin Calderwood's side.

"I've been training since the end of the last week towards a game that I've been aiming for - which is the reserve game tonight," said Ledley.

"At the moment the ankle is feeling good and I'm feeling quite good in training. I just want to get this game under my belt and hopefully try and push on from there.

"I think I just went over on it against Stevengage. It was a bit sore during the game, but one of those where you can get through it and get through to half-time, which is what I wanted to do. I was in a bit of pain after the game and it seemed to drag on from there.

"It was a little sprain of the ligaments - it wasn't too bad. I've been out to Germany to see a doctor out there and he helped a lot."
