Spurs Vs. WBA

Spurs have been presented with an excellent opportunity to progress not only to the fifth round but even to the quarter finals as the winner will have a plum home tie with Nottingham Forest.

Spurs go into the game with confident displays if not the right results. Mido and Davies led the way last weekend against Portsmouth and an excellent performance meant we took all three points.

Mido cannot play as he was signed after the original tie while Reid is cup tied. King has a niggling groin injury and Ziegler is doubtful. The worlds most skilful left back is a doubt as well, along with long termer Sean Davis. Pamarot should be fit again and could slot into the central defensive position with Naybet but I suspect Gardner would do that if King doesn't make it. Carrick and Brown will make the central pairing with Davies on the right. The left side could be Atouba if he passes the test with Edman going back into the left defensive spot. Kelly should keep his place after an excellent game against Pompey.

Defoe will start with either Keane or Kanoute. Who knows which one it will be.

WBA have been leaking goals left right and centre and if the defense are more awake than they were at The Hawthorns then Spurs should progress.
