Assou-Ekotto back for Spurs after four-month layoff
Published 04/01/2013 | 12:29
LEFT-BACK Benoit Assou-Ekotto has overcome his knee injury and looks set to make his first Tottenham appearance in four months tomorrow against Coventry in the FA Cup.
Midfielder Scott Parker is likely to make his first start of the season and goalkeeper Brad Friedel could play as manager Andre Villas-Boas looks to rotate his squad following a tiring festive period.
Winger Gareth Bale is available following his one-match suspension but defender William Gallas (calf) is unlikely to feature and Younes Kaboul is out until mid-to-late February with his knee problem.
Team (from): Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Vertonghen, Caulker, Gallas, Assou-Ekotto, Lennon, Sigurdsson, Falque, Townsend, Livermore, Carroll, Mason, Huddlestone, Parker, Sandro, Dembele, Bale, Defoe, Adebayor.
