Ledley back, but Woody, Wilson and Luka to miss out

Ledley King is fit to return to the Tottenham squad for the trip to Portsmouth, tomorrow.

The defender has recovered from a hamstring injury which he picked up against Chelsea in September, but won’t be joined by Jonathan Woodgate – who is not ready to return to first-team duties just yet.

Luka Modric and Giovani dos Santos will also miss the match at Fratton Park.

“Woody’s trained well this week but he’s not quite ready, he’s a week away yet,” Redknapp told the club’s official site. “We’ll fix up another practice match, he’ll get a game in there and that will do him a world of good.

“He could then be back in contention.”

“Ledley’s trained and worked hard,” added Redknapp. “He played a half in the practice game this week and did a bit this morning and came through it okay. He should be fit.”

Redknapp also confirmed that Wilson Palacios is unlikely to feature: “Wilson’s due back at six o’clock and will come straight to the team hotel but it’s difficult to start him after all that travelling.”
