Quartet set for debuts at Hawthorns

BY foxsports • September 10, 2010

The quartet of new signings are in the Spurs squad for Saturday's trip to The Hawthorns. Jermain Defoe and Michael Dawson are both out for several weeks with damaged ligaments, Heurelho Gomes (groin) is unlikely to be fit, while Jamie O'Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) are long-term absentees. Peter Crouch has shaken off a back strain, Luka Modric has recovered from a groin injury, David Bentley is fit after an ankle problem, while Spurs boss Harry Redknapp must decide whether to protect captain Ledley King's notoriously fragile knees for Tuesday night's Champions League Group A opener at Werder Bremen. Tottenham (from): Cudicini, King, Gallas, Hutton, Bale, Kaboul, Bassong, Corluka, Jenas, Assou-Ekotto, Sandro, Huddlestone, Lennon, Palacios, Kranjcar, Bentley, Modric, Van der Vaart, Dos Santos, Crouch, Keane, Pavyluchenko, Pletikosa.
