Team News ahead of Newcastle

So Spurs have a chance to move up to 8th, if we win by more than 3 goals against Newcastle tomorrow. Not out of the realm of possibility, but I think we might be staying in 9th position tomorrow. Not too shabby considering where we were just two months ago. Here's some news ahead of the fixture at the Lane tomorrow.

Jermain Defoe might be in the team tomorrow. Harry has been impressed with his training this week and he could get a run-out. Which is definitely good since Roman Pavlyuchenko could miss out on the game with an injury. I'm not really sure what the injury is, but he is in danger of not being fit.

Also out for the match will be Jermaine Jenas, whose hamstring problem has not improved dramatically since his substitution at half-time of the West Ham match. JJ might be fit for the trip to Old Trafford next week, but he'll be watching this one like the rest of us tomorrow.

Wilson Palacios returns from his one-match suspension for his red card against Blackburn, and the odds are on Tom Huddlestone partnering him in the middle of the pitch tomorrow. My earlier post today details my thoughts on Huddlestone and his role tomorrow, so feel free to check that out as well.

Alan Hutton is back to fitness, though it remains to be seen if he'll feature in the match tomorrow. I would like to see him make the bench and get some playing time before the end of the season.

Here is my projected lineup, I'll post the official one in the morning:


Corluka, Woodgate, Kind, BAE

Lennon, Palacios, Huddlestone, Modric

Keane, Bent

Substitutes: Cudicini, Dawson, Bale, Zokora, Bentley, O'Hara, Defoe
