Roman Pavlyuchenko is hoping to be fit in time to face Portsmouth next weekend.

The Russian striker limped off during the first half of Tottenham’s 2-1 win at Stoke City on Saturday and had feared that he had torn his left hamstring.

Pavlyuchenko has undergone a scan on the injury, and although he will miss the FA Cup quarter-final replay against Fulham, could be back in action on Saturday.

‘At first there was suspicion of a tear and I was terribly upset because I’ve just started to play and could be out for a couple of weeks,’ said Pavlyuchenko. ‘But on Sunday I visited specialists, fearing the worst, but thank God this was not confirmed.

‘In fact, I had a muscle spasm, after which you just have to rest for two or three days to avoid anything worse.

‘The club doctor confirmed that if everything is normal I will return to training on Tuesday.

‘I will miss the FA Cup game on Wednesday, but I should be ready for Portsmouth.’
