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).

Four players continue to give Glenn Hoddle and John Gorman cause for concern before Sunday's trip to Fulham.

Les Ferdinand aggravated an Achilles problem after taking a hefty couple of tackles in Monday's clash against Charlton Athletic and remains a big doubt.

Meanwhile Teddy Sheringham (groin), Ben Thatcher (calf) and Dean Richards (hamstring) - who all missed Monday's defeat - are all battling to be fit in time for Craven Cottage.

Assistant boss John reported: "We're hoping for some good news on Teddy, Les is still doubtful but improving, Deano is improving so is Ben Thatcher. At least we have until Sunday. That extra day might well be a blessing for us."

Gary Doherty and Stephen Clemence continued their comebacks from long-term injury for the reserves against Arsenal on Thursday.

Mauricio Taricco sits it out as he serves a one-match ban for his sending off at Manchester United. He will then serve another four matches for his red card at Chelsea.

Oyvind Leonhardsen (calf), Goran Bunjevcevic (knee), Chris Armstrong (back) and Stephen Carr (knee) remain out.

Sean Davis is hopeful of featuring for Fulham. Davis has not played for Jean Tigana's team since sustaining heavy bruising to his thigh in the 2-0 defeat against Liverpool.

Lee Clark is still not available, but he has set himself a target of the FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea to make his comeback from a calf strain.

John Collins has been working with fitness coach Roger Propos to overcome a minor hamstring niggle, and is expected to be fit.
