Les hopeful

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).

Les Ferdinand remains hopeful of making our FA Cup date with Coventry despite suffering an ankle injury at Portman Road on Saturday.

Glenn says that Wednesday might come too soon for Les and we will see how his recovery progresses, but our No.9 is optimistic.

"That is the case," said Les of Glenn's prognosis. "I feel a lot better than we were hoping for after the weekend. I feel in good shape and hopefully I've got a chance for Wednesday.

"The unfortunate thing on Saturday is that the defender caught me right on the nerve and the ankle fell, they call it a 'drop foot' or something like that and the ankle just fell beneath me.

"By the end of the game walking onto the bus I felt a lot better. I came in on Sunday and it was pretty sore, but it didn't stop me walking and I'm not limping at the moment so I've got a chance."

Les was not training on Monday at Spurs Lodge in order to give himself every chance of making himself available for the big week ahead.

"I'm going to stay off it for the next day or two and see how it is on Wednesday morning.

"It's a massive week for us. Things haven't gone according to plan of late, we've lost a bit of form, but we knew we'd do that at some stage during the season. It is now important that we get back on track as soon as possible, starting with Wednesday at Coventry."
