Rose returns

Danny Rose made a successful return from long-term injury for our Academy side at the weekend and is back in our reserve squad against Fulham at Leyton Orient tonight (Monday).

The attack-minded midfielder put in a 45-minute stint in the Under-18s 4-4 draw at Reading in the FA Premier Academy League.

In fact Danny, still just 18, helped the lads come back from a 4-1 half-time deficit to maintain their record of just one league defeat all season.

The England youth international made a bright start to the campaign - he impressed for our Spurs XI side in pre-season, scored twice for the U18s against champions Manchester City on the opening day of the FAPAL and helped the reserves win their opener against West Brom - but suffered a serious knee injury in September.

"It was great to see him back," said coach Alex Inglethorpe. "He started the season so well and it was really disappointing to see him get injured.

"He did well and contributed to a good second half performance."

Danny is joined in tonight's reserve squad by Jake Livermore, another recent returnee from long-term injury.

Development coach Clive Allen added: "They've started their recovery with appearances for the Academy, they are back to full training and we'll now look for them to push on with game time for the reserves.

"It's great to see them back again and they now have a chance between now and the end of the season to get a few reserves games under their belts."
