Spurs vs Stoke will go ahead


White Hart Lane - Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Wednesday’s Premier League game against Stoke City will go ahead as Spurs look to keep their Champions League Odds alive.

The BBC also confirmed the news earlier.

A statement on the official Spurs site read: The Club can confirm that Wednesday evening’s Premier League fixture against Stoke City at White Hart Lane will go ahead as scheduled, kicking off at 7.45pm.

Manager Harry Redknapp said: “What happened on Saturday to Fabrice Muamba was a shock to everyone.

“It is possible that the effects of this could hit some quicker than others and despite these difficult circumstances we all have to pull together and carry on with our season.

“We will be providing players with whatever support they need in order to help them move on from what has happened, while obviously always keeping Fabrice at the forefront of our minds and willing him to make a recovery.

“Fortunately, we already had a cardiologist visiting the training ground today for routine screening, so we are able to offer any player who wishes to be tested for the purpose of reassurance an additional opportunity to be screened.”

The thoughts of everyone at the Club continue to be with Fabrice Muamba, his family and Bolton Wanderers at this difficult time.

Spurs haven’t lost four Premier League games in a row since November 2004 and haven’t lost back to back home games since September 2008.

Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is again a doubt (hamstring) and defender Ledley King (knee) will be assessed.

Winger Aaron Lennon remains sidelined with a hamstring problem while William Gallas is fit again following a calf injury.

Defender Michael Dawson (ankle), goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes (knee), and midfielder Tom Huddlestone (ankle) are out.
