Posted on 29 December 2000  - 12:00

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).

Stephen Carr is out of the squad to face Ipswich Town in the Premiership on Saturday. <P class=MsoNormal>The Irish full-back has been affected by a groin problem since just before the Middlesbrough game last weekend and had to be substituted at half-time at Southampton on Wednesday. <P class=MsoNormal>It is still unclear what the problem is exactly but Carr complained that he found it difficult to sprint at The Dell and that rest may be the best medicine. His absence means he will lose his ever-present tag this season. <P class=MsoNormal>Les Ferdinand is still out after picking up another nasty head knock against Middlesbrough. He also missed out at Southampton. <P class=MsoNormal>Better news sees Tim Sherwood in the squad after fears that a knee injury sustained at Southampton might rule him out as well. <P class=MsoNormal>With Ben Thatcher, Mauricio Taricco (both groin) and Luke Young (foot) all still out we will travel to Portman Road without a recognised full-back. <P class=MsoNormal>Steffen Freund (Achilles) and Steffen Iversen (knee) are also still unavailable. <P class=MsoNormal><B>Spurs squad: </B>Sullivan, Walker, Perry, Campbell, Thelwell, Doherty, Gardner, Clemence, Anderton, Sherwood, King, Leonhardsen, Davies, Etherington, Rebrov, Armstrong, Korsten, Toner.<SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt"></SPAN> <P>Jim Magilton is the major doubt for Ipswich. </SPAN><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">The Northern Ireland midfielder picked up a knock on the side of his knee in the pre-Christmas defeat at Manchester United and missed the Boxing Day draw with Chelsea. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN><P>Town boss George Burley deployed three strikers in that game and may stick with the same side, with Alun Armstrong expected to shake off a knee problem of his own in time. <o:p></o:p></SPAN><P>Should Burley revert to four orthodox midfielders, Dutchman Martijn Reuser may be handed a rare Premiership start. <o:p></o:p></SPAN><P><B>Ipswich:</SPAN></B> R Wright, Wilnis, McGreal, Venus, Hreidarsson, Croft, J Wright, Magilton, Holland, Clapham, Scowcroft, Stewart, Armstrong, Johnson, Bramble, Reuser, Branagan, Karic.</SPAN><P><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
