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).

Andy Booth is expected to make his debut at West Ham on Wednesday night.

Our loan signing from Sheffield Wednesday is likely to stand in for Les Ferdinand and partner Sergei Rebrov up front at Upton Park.

Ferdinand damaged his hamstring in our last outing against Southampton on January 20 and will be out for at least another fortnight.

He is one of three senior strikers on the sidelines with Chris Armstrong (groin) and Steffen Iversen (knee) also out.

Full-backs Stephen Carr and Mauricio Taricco (both groin) are still out.

Goalkeeper Ian Walker, outstanding in the 0-0 draw against the Saints, gets another chance as Neil Sullivan sits out the second of his two-match ban.

One positive note sees Tim Sherwood return from suspension.

Speaking about the injury list, boss George Graham commented: "I know a lot of the fans are said ‘George Graham, he’s just falling in line with other managers who never stopped talking about injuries’ but it’s something I’ve not managed to solve.

"Speaking to other managers it seems everyone has had a horrific year injury wise. It’s just something you have to cater for before the season starts and make sure you have a big and talented enough squad to handle it."
