White Hart Lane
Sat 4th May 2013
Saints came a cropper in a big way last week and will be hoping that another display like that one is out of their system.
Spurs will be looking for an emphatic victory as they fight for a Champions League place and will have Gareth Bale ready to fire a few bullets at us.
Knowing that they have a big game against Chelsea facing them on Wednesday the thought of defeat to Saints will not be crossing their minds.
For Saints a defeat could still be enough to stay up. unless by an enormous margin. as Wigan could easily lose to WBA at the Hawthorns.
Saints will be without suspended duo Ramirez and Fox after they both picked up red cards last week.
Luke Shaw is fit againand will be expected to return. James Ward-Prowse could also be fit enough to be in the matchday squad.
Our 'keeper will be expecting a busy afternoon and wioll need to be at his best to help keep us in the game.
Mousa Dembele is a doubt having come off during that match with a muscle injury, while Jake Livermore was missing from the squad altogether.
Sandro, William Gallas and Younes Kaboul are definitely ruled out.
Gareth will be buzzing after picking up two player of the year awards this week. Being an ex Saint will also be of importance as he prepares to face us.
Saints have a very poor record at the Lane.
Spurs have won 31, drawn 10 and lost just 10 times to Saints.
In doing so they have also notched up 128 goals.
Mark Clattenburg officiate. Assisted by Mr S Ledger and Mr M Scholes. Mr T Bates is the fourth official.
As much as I would like us to win I can see us losing again. 3-1
