Posted on 2 February 2001  - 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).

It&rsquo&#59;s goalkeeping dilemmas all round for Saturday&rsquo&#59;s visit of Charlton to the Lane.<P class=MsoNormal>As George Graham chooses between Neil Sullivan <I>(pictured)</I> and Ian Walker, his opposite number Alan Curbishley also has a choice as to who replaces the injured Dean Kiely.<P class=MsoNormal>Boss George admitted on Friday that he has made his decision for the number one slot &mdash&#59; between Sullivan, back from a two-match ban or Walker, who has kept two clean sheets in his absence.<P class=MsoNormal>But he was left reeling again on Friday with another injury setback from the striking jinx that seems to haunt the club at the moment.<P class=MsoNormal>Chris Armstrong (groin), Steffen Iversen (knee) and Les Ferdinand (hamstring) are all still out and may now be joined by Dave McEwen, who has featured in recent weeks but picked up an ankle injury in training.<P class=MsoNormal>Otherwise Stephen Carr (groin), who is rapidly approaching fitness again and Mauricio Taricco (groin) remain sidelined.<P class=MsoNormal>Andy Booth, on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, will make his home debut.<P class=MsoNormal><B>Spurs squad:</B> Sullivan, Walker, Anderton, Perry, Campbell, Doherty, Thelwell, Gardner, Clemence, Young, Leonhardsen, Freund, King, Sherwood, Davies, Etherington, Booth, Rebrov, McEwen, Korsten.<P class=MsoNormal>Charlton boss Alan Curbishley finds himself in the middle of a goalkeeping dilemma as well.<P class=MsoNormal>First-choice Dean Kiely injured a groin in saving a penalty in the 2-1 win over Derby in midweek and Tony Caig, who replaced him at half-time, is favourite over Charlton's Wembley play-off hero of 1998 Sasa Ilic. <P class=MsoNormal>Despite winning against the Rams in midweek, Curbishley may make further changes to his line-up. The Addicks boss has made five switches in his two previous matches, a policy that has been successful at The Valley during a seven-match unbeaten run. <P class=MsoNormal>Youngster Paul Konchesky may return after being rested in midweek but Chris Powell will no doubt be aching to face the team he supported as a boy. <P class=MsoNormal><B>Charlton (from):</B> Caig, Kishishev, Konchesky, Rufus, Fish, Brown, Todd, Powell, Parker, Jensen, Robinson, Stuart, Newton, Salako, Svensson, Bartlett, Lisbie, Kinsella, Ilic. <BR style="mso-special-character: line-break"><BR style="mso-special-character: line-break"><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
