Team News

  • Gretar Steinsson remains a doubt having missed the Sunderland game, so Boyata should continue at right-back.
  • Reo-Coker picked up a knock in that game and could also miss out, but with Muamba and Holden still out and Pratley also a doubt, Bolton have little cover to be able to rest him.
  • Klasnic made an impact from the bench last time out and will hope to replace David Ngog, partnering Kevin Davies up front.
  • Scott Parker missed the last game with an Achilles injury and may continue to be rested after a great display by Sandro last time out.
  • Assou-Ekotto will miss the rest of the season, so Rose will keep his place at left-back.
  • Kaboul has returned to fitness and will continue to partner Gallas. Spurs could name the same side that were so dominant against Blackburn.

Prediction

  • Ordinarily Bolton would be more than happy with a draw in this game but that may not be enough, so they will have to open up at some point and Tottenham will aim to pick their moments.
  • Due to a couple of cup meetings in recent years, 5 of the last 6 games between the two sides have been played at Spurs, with the hosts winning every one. However, the one game in that run that was played at Bolton ended in a shock 4-2 win for the Trotters last season.
  • In fact, Spurs haven't won at Bolton in the Premier League since their first trip to the North-West back in 1996 and the hosts will hope to continue that run in their bid for survival. However, they will have to play on the counter through the likes of Petrov and Eagles with the visitors likely to dominate possession.
