Teemu Tainio is back in the squad to face Sheffield United at the Lane tomorrow night but Jermain Defoe is an injury doubt.

The striker was receiving treatment at Spurs Lodge today after suffering a bruised foot in our Premiership opener at Bolton on Saturday.

Teemu is available for selection after a twisted ankle in training ruled him out of the trip to Bolton leaving only skipper Ledley King on the sidelines.

“Jermain Defoe is a worry,” reported boss Martin Jol this afternoon. “He bruised his foot at Bolton but he's a tough lad and maybe he'll be in the squad, we'll have to see tomorrow.”

“Teemu is back, he trained today so he will be in the squad.”
