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).

Gus Poyet will miss Saturday's clash against Leicester City as he sits out a one-match ban for five yellow cards.

Les Ferdinand and Mauricio Taricco overcame neck problems in time for Tuesday's win against Bolton Wanderers and Taricco, who played for 75 minutes, came through unscathed.

However, we are still without eight injured players. The news is good on Anthony Gardner and Christian Ziege (both knee) while Stephen Carr (knee), Stephen Clemence (groin), Goran Bunjevcevic (thigh), Gary Doherty (broken leg), Chris Armstrong (hernia) and Steffen Freund (knee) are at various stages of recovery.

Assistant boss John Gorman revealed: "Anthony Gardner is getting there, improving and Christian Ziege is back training again which is great news.

"But we have a lot of quality out and long-term injuries as well. We've had those players out and a few suspensions as well. Gus Poyet is suspended for this game and he'll obviously be missed."

Leicester will be without Muzzy Izzet who, like Gus, serves a one-match ban after collecting five yellow cards for the campaign.

But Dave Bassett is confident Andrew Impey (knee), Frank Sinclair (hip), James Scowcroft (groin) and Robbie Savage (calf) should all be fit.
