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).

Glenn Hoddle is down to the 'bare bones' as he prepares for his homecoming as manager at the Lane.

Seven players are definitely out with Sol Campbell (ankle), Steffen Freund (knee) Les Ferdinand (hamstring), Darren Anderton (Achilles), Chris Armstrong (groin), Mauricio Taricco (groin) and Ben Thatcher (hip) all sidelined. Ledley King (ankle) will have a late test.

At least Stephen Clemence, Tim Sherwood, Oyvind Leonhardsen and Stephen Carr all came through Sunday's semi-final defeat against Arsenal unscathed after returning from injury.

Bradford centre-back David Wetherall is out faces an anxious wait for the results of a scan which could lead to the threat of a second groin operation.

Manager Jim Jefferies is also without Ian Nolan, Jamie Lawrence and Gary Locke through injury, and given the threadbare nature of the squad following 12 recent departures on permanent or loan deals, is not spoilt for choice.

Striker Ben Jones, midfielder Andrew Lee and defender Lewis Emanuel, teenagers who only signed professional contracts last week after coming through the ranks, have been added to the squad.

We are 15/2 to record a second consecutive 3-0 home win - click for details.
