Spurs (h)

We return to Premiership action on Saturday when Martin Jol's Tottenham side are the visitors to SJP for a 3pm kickoff.


NUFC: Given, Srnicek, Solano, Babayaro, Taylor, Ramage, Huntington, Parker, Butt, Emre, Milner, Duff, Pattison, Troisi, Gate, Edgar, Martins, Dyer, Sibierski, Luque, Rossi, Carroll.

Both Babayaro and Duff are doubts, meaning that we may be forced to name an unchanged side to that which lost to Chelsea in midweek.

If Roeder does change things around, Rossi and Sibierski could find themselves promoted from the bench - the former playing at SJP for the last time before his current loan period ends, if he gets on at all.

Ameobi, Bernard, Bramble, Carr, Harper, Moore, N'Zogbia and Owen are all sidelined throughout the festive season.


THFC: Robinson, Cerny, Chimbonda, Lee, Dawson, King, Assou-Ekotto, Stalteri, Davenport, Gardner, Zokora, Davids, Tainio, Murphy, Ghaly, Malbranque, Ziegler, Huddlestone, Berbatov, Mido, Defoe.

Jermaine Jenas (ankle) and Robbie Keane (knee) will both be absent. Zokora will be available to return after serving a three match ban.

Aaron Lennon missed out on Sunday's victory at Manchester City but expects to be fit to appear at SJP.


Ref: Alan Wiley - second outing of the season at SJP for this official - provided he can make it up through the mist. His other appearance came in the Fulham home defeat.


Former players Malcolm Macdonald and Tony Green will be signing copies of Dylan Younger's Newcastle Cult Heroes book at Fenwicks from Noon.

Meanwhile over at Idols, it's the turn of former pitman and striker Alan Shoulder to answer questions in the latest free talk-in, from 1.45pm onwards.


Transport: The Back Page have a limited number of seats left on their buses for this game - bookings via 0191 261 5005 or at the shop (last booking day is Saturday 23rd.)
