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).

Edgar Davids and Robbie Keane are in the squad for Saturday's Premiership clash against Middlesbrough at the Lane.


The pair missed last weekend's opening day win at Portsmouth with Edgar suffering a knee problem and Robbie turning his ankle over in training late last week.


They are in a 17-man squad alongside Aaron Lennon, who gets a call-up following an injury to Wayne Routledge.


"Yes, both are in the squad," confirmed Head Coach Martin Jol this afternoon. "I'm very happy with that because it was a blow to lose them last week and we've been unlucky with Wayne this week.


"We have to find a solution to the right side but I think we'll cope, Andy Reid can play on the right and we have other options.


"Aaron Lennon is in the squad and he's a similar player to Wayne, so that's something else to think about as well."


Winger Wayne picked up a foot injury at Portsmouth and is one of seven players out alongside Michael Brown (foot/stomach), Ledley King (groin), Mounir El Hamdaoui (ankle), Noe Pamarot, Sean Davis and Tom Huddlestone (all knee).


Martin added: "Michael played 45 minutes for the reserves, did well, is training with us and is getting fitter and fitter. Ledley still has a minor problem, Noe is still out but Sean will play in the reserves' next game.


"Mounir's ankle is getting better but Wayne is out for a couple of weeks with a little stress fracture of the foot.


"Tom did very well for us but he could be out for weeks with a knee injury and that's why he's not in the squad."
