<SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Sergei Rebrov is our main doubt against Derby on Saturday.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Our Ukrainian hotshot and current top scorer with five Premiership goals has been struggling this week with a thigh problem. However, he is expected to be okay.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">His fitness is vital with Steffen Iversen having flown back to Norway this week to see a specialist about a knee injury. He is expected to be out for two weeks.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">With Chris Armstrong (hamstring) also still out, Rebrov will partner Les Ferdinand in attack with cover from Willem Korsten and Gary Doherty.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Sol Campbell (shoulder) is a fortnight away from fitness but Luke Young returns after a foot problem. He could put pressure on the defensive pair of Chris Perry and Ramon Vega while Anthony Gardner is in the squad for the first time this season after a summer injury.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Our other absentee is full-back Mauricio Taricco (groin) but goalkeeper Neil Sullivan is available again after a one-match suspension.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">For the Rams, Branko Strupar's troublesome groin could see him sidelined. He's just had a hernia operation but looks to still be struggling and is unlikely to feature.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Chris Riggott will be in the squad after x-rays on his knee - following the penalty box clash with Michael Owen last Sunday that saw the Liverpool striker stretchered off the Pride Park pitch - found there was no bone.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Horacio Carbonari serves the second of his three-match suspension for two consecutive red cards earlier this season.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Spurs squad:</SPAN></B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt"> Sullivan, Walker, Carr, Perry, Vega, Gardner, Young, Thatcher, Thelwell, Anderton, Freund, Sherwood, Clemence, Davies, Etherington, Dominguez, Ferdinand, Rebrov, Korsten, Leonhardsen.<o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
