Tottenham Hotspur fans may be enjoying the club’s rich run of form but Sportingbet punters are joining the fun, heavily backing Harry Redknapp’s side ahead of their trip to Blackburn on Sunday afternoon.

That support has seen Spurs move in to 4/5 to beat the struggling Ewood Park side – something their near neighbours failed to do just a few weeks ago. Blackburn are as big as 16/5 to claim another North London scalp, while the draw is chalked up at 13/5.

Confidence will be high for the visitors after Roman Pavlyuchenko’s super strike continued the momentum in the Europa League. The Russian was tipped at 9/2 for the opener in this very column as well as Under 2.5 Goals at 10/11, so here’s hoping you were in the money on Thursday night!

Emmanuel Adebayor is more likely to get amongst the goals if he returns to the side on Sunday, with 6/5 for a goal at any time, while Gareth Bale is due to hit the net (21/10 any time). Meanwhile Spurs have won close games to nil on their last two visits to Blackburn, so perhaps another delve into Under 2.5 Goals at 10/11 is in order.

Away from the pitch, Jermain Defoe met a host of Sportingbet Spurs Zone winners on Tuesday night for our latest fans forum. The little striker launched a full scale charm offensive and had the room in stitches on everything from Pavlyuchenko’s dress sense to the biggest dressing room jokers.

All the pictures from a great night at White Hart Lane can be found in the Up Close section, while there are Aston Villa tickets and signed goodies to be won in Get Close. Swing by www.spurszone.co.uk to enter. Good luck!

Odds correct at time of writing...
