Harry Redknapp has claimed he will not be rushing Aaron Lennon back from his groin injury and will check on his fitness before risking him in any of Spurs’ remaining fixtures.
Lennon made his comeback as a substitute in Spurs 3-1 defeat at Manchester United on Saturday, playing the final 25 minutes.
That was Lennon’s first appearance of 2010 and Redknapp will be cautious before throwing the winger into the battle to secure fourth place.
“Lennon could be key player.
“I don’t know really. It depends how he is.
“He came on, but he never really got into a sprint. That is his first run out, so we will have to see how he is this week.”
Lennon is battling to play a part in Tottenham’s run-in, whilst also hoping to prove his fitness in time to take part in this summer’s World Cup.
