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).

Martin Jol has a trio of late doubts on top of a lengthy list of absentees to contend with before Sunday's finale against Blackburn Rovers.


Michael Dawson, Simon Davies and Sean Davis are the doubts for the game that will decide our European fate.


Paul Robinson (knee), Pedro Mendes (broken toe), Anthony Gardner (foot), Thimothee Atouba (ankle), Noe Pamarot (knee), Michael Brown (foot) are all out.


The only positive note was the return of Noureddine Naybet to training after an ankle injury.


Head Coach Martin reported this afternoon: "Michael, Simon and Sean didn't train today. Michael has a problem with his calf, Sean has a knee problem and Simon has an infected toe.


"Naybet did train and is back in the squad and I have included Johnnie Jackson.


"I think Dawson could play but I'm not sure yet because normally if players aren't training a couple of days before a game, they don't tend to play. This is different though because Anthony Gardner is out, so there is no cover. Maybe Naybet is fit enough and he did train today for the first time.


"It's a difficult situation. It's the last game of the season and everyone thinks we have to score five goals but we have other problems as well."
