Leicester City will want to put an end on Saturday to their miserable run that has seen the team lose their last eight Premiership matches, a sequence that began after their shock FA Cup defeat at the hands of second division Wycombe Wanderers.
The Foxes worst run in their 107-year history has seen the pressure increase on Peter Taylor who made a great start to his managerial career, leading the team to the top of the table in the early stages of the season.
However those heady days appear to be distant memories as they seek to end their poor run of form against a Tottenham team that has won only two away games all season.
And with Glenn Hoddle, like his former Spurs team-mate Taylor, having a massive injury list, Saturday's game is not one that is expected to set the world alight.
Spurs 'keeper Neil Sullivan, who has made the most saves in 2000/01 with 132 Premiership stops, can rest assured that shouldn't be in for his busiest afternoon of the campaign at Filbert Street .
Many of Sullivan's team-mates will be eager to impress Hoddle as he will decide over the summer which new players he wants at the club and which of the current crop can move on to pastures new.
One such player who shouldn't worry about his future is Stephen Carr who this week was named as the right back in the PFA's Team of the season. Carr's eight interceptions have only been bettered by Chris Perry, but then the speedy Irishman did spend four months on the sidelines through injury on a repeat performance in front of the cameras on Monday, as City kiss goodbye to their top-flight status.
Hoping to give Carr a difficult time out on the flank on Saturday will be Leicester left-winger Steve Guppy. Despite the teams horrendous run of results, Guppy has put in some encouraging displays since winning his place back. It was his assist that set up the Foxes' last strike when Ade Akinbiyi netted an equaliser against Manchester City last month.
And the east Midlanders, who have attempted 58 more crosses than their opponents on Saturday, will look to the flanks to provide a constant stream of deliveries to unsettle the Londoners' rookie defenders in Anthony Gardner and Luke Young.
Bearing this in mind, it might be worth putting a few quid on Leicester ending their dismal spell with an uplifting 2-1 victory. It looks a fair price at 9/1 with www.SpursBet.co.uk .
