Tony on the mend

Posted on 10 October 2001  - 12:00

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).

Anthony Gardner is happy to report that the hamstring injury he sustained at Peterborough was just 'a tweak'.

Tony should be available for reserve team duty next week after receiving the healing powers of the physios and is relieved that, after recovering from a long-term knee injury, he has not suffered another lengthy setback.

"It was just a slight tweak and I've had some treatment over the last couple of days," revealed Tony. "I was told not to risk doing anymore damage, as I've just come back from injury and trying to get fit, so it's best not to push too hard and try and get it right over the coming days."

Thankfully Tony is not booked for another spell in the treatment room and rest appears to have done the trick.

"The little bit of treatment I've had is just a precaution really, after being out for a few months I don't want to pull a hamstring.

"I'll be back training in a couple of days, it's not feeling too bad now, I've been for a run and should be looking at playing in the reserve game next week more than likely."

Tony admits that he did fear the worst when he came off at London Road, just as his Man of the Match award was being announced.

"Yes, I did look on the bad side. I came here in the morning and felt a lot better and thought it was just a muscle spasm.

"Thankfully it was nothing too bad."
