Spurs put Lennon through paces

The winger is at the club’s base in Chigwell, Essex, to undergo

tests on the hamstring complaint which caused him to withdraw from

England’s friendly against Ghana at Wembley. Tottenham will be

hoping that the 23-year-old, who has played a pivotal role in

Spurs’ domestic and European campaigns this season, will be fit to

play in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final clash

against Real Madrid in seven days’ time, and Saturday’s Premier

League game with Wigan. Fellow winger Gareth Bale’s participation

in next week’s clash at the Bernabeu was put in doubt after the

club revealed he had suffered a hamstring strain prior to Wales’

2-0 defeat to England last week. The former Southampton man

returned to light training on Monday and Spurs will monitor their

star man before deciding whether or not to risk him in either of

the club’s next two games. Midfielder Tom Huddlestone has been

missing for almost four months with an ankle injury but hopes to

return for Saturday’s game at Wigan.
