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 was happy to report nothing but 'knocks and bruises' at Middlesbrough as we prepare to face Leeds United today.

The boss went into the match still deprived of the services of Stephen Carr, Steffen Freund, Goran Bunjevcevic, Les Ferdinand, Gary Doherty, Oyvind Leonhardsen, Chris Armstrong and Christian Ziege.

Dean Richards and Teddy Sheringham, recovering from hamstring and groin problems respectively, were on the bench and the skipper made a 20-minute appearance in the second half.

Glenn reported at the Riverside: "There are a couple of knocks and bruises but nothing too serious.

"But even of you get a slight knock, 48 hours isn't a lot of time to recouperate. We'll see how they shape up on Sunday when we train."

Teddy remains a doubt of being ready to start against Leeds and Glenn added: "Teddy's had a slight groin since the Chelsea game.

"It's persisting and with two games in such a short space of time we had to give him a semi-rest, if you like.

"I don't think he's hindered it any more. It's still there but he hasn't set it back, which is good news."
