Michael Dawson has suffered a slight setback in his recovery from an Achilles injury.
Dawson has been told to stop jogging and return to doing gym work instead – which he admits has left him ‘down’.
“I was outside running earlier in the week but the Achilles was still a little sore, so I’ve had to take a step back and concentrate on working in the gym,” Dawson told Tottenham’s website.
“The physios aren’t too worried as I’ve been in a protective boot for a couple of weeks and I need to strengthen it up. I’m obviously a little down, but you never know with injuries and rehab, so we’ll wait and see.
“I’ll have a weekend’s rest now and then it will be back to it next week.
“It’s so disappointing to be injured and I was with Tom Huddlestone in the gym this week, he’s also out, and it’s a hard time for a footballer, it’s the side of the game people don’t see.”
