Martin Jol has been buoyed by the news that Teemu Tainio is set to return to training tomorrow (Wednesday).

Martin Jol has been buoyed by the news that Teemu Tainio is set to return to training tomorrow (Wednesday).

It was initially feared that the tigerish midfielder could miss most of the rest of the season after picking up an ankle injury against Arsenal on April 21.

However, the injury was diagnosed as a severe sprain rather than any fracture and he's battled his way back to fitness in 10 days.

"I always said that I hoped Teemu would be back before the end of the season, he's a strong lad and he will join us tomorrow," said Martin at Spurs Lodge on Tuesday afternoon.

"We need all the players at this stage. Anthony Gardner will also hopefully train tomorrow, he's coming back and so is Benoit Assou-Ekotto, so it's looking better for us."

Anthony has been out since suffering a hairline fracture of the fibula at Chelsea on March 11 while Benoit has been out since February with a knee injury.
