Blues go to the Lane

Spurs
vs.
Blues

White Hart Lane

26th Dec

1pm

Blues travel to WHL on Boxing day to face Tottenham. Blues are yet to win at the Lane since we have been in the Prem but we did defeat Spurs 3-1 in the Worthington Cup on the 31st October 2000.

Bruce Says

"Unfortunately he has been getting over a serious injury and the biggest problem with that are the other niggles that seem to go along with it.Here we are at Christmas time and he hasn't really been free of injury and 100 per cent fit.We would love it if he stayed fit because we all know that he's a goalscorer.Too many of our big players have been injured and trying to get them to recover has proved to be very difficult, players such Forssell, Muzzy Izzet, David Dunn and Mario Melchiot. "But I can't nurse them any more at this level because it is unforgiving. "I have got to be wary with four games in eight days that some of them won't be capable of at."

Spurs Team News:

Spurs will be without Andy Reid and are unlikely to have Tainio, Aaron Lennon and Jermaine Defoe how are struggling to be fit for the Boxing Day clash.

Player to watch: Ledley King

Has been in good form this season and should have a good battle against Heskey

Blues Team News:

Blues have Striker Mikeal Forssell as the only major doubt for the trip to WHL. Neil Kilkenny is back to full fitness after coming on as a sub against Man Utd.

Blues are still without long term absentees Melchiot, Izzet and Nafti.

Player to watch: Emile Heskey

Has been our only good player of late and as i've mentioned should have a good tusle with King.

Match Facts & Stats

Blues have not lost on Boxing Day since a 2-1 reverse at Blackburn in 2000. We've won three and drawn one of our four subsequent 26 December fixtures.

Ref Watch:

Phil Dowd (Stoke-on-Trent)
