Michael Dawson will play an hour of Tottenham Hotspur’s Carling Cup tie at Preston North End.
Harry Redknapp confirmed that the central defender will be in the squad for the clash at Deepdale.
“Michael is back in the squad and I’m looking at giving him an hour,” Redknapp told the club’s official site.
“That’s as much as we can expect of him as he’s been out for a long time.
“He’s a fantastic lad and a good player for us and it’s great to have him back but we don’t want to see him break down again in what will be his first game back.”
Sebastien Bassong and Ledley King are ruled out, so it’s expected that Dawson will partner Vedran Corluka at the heart of the Spurs defence.
