Tottenham - Stoke City game given the go-ahead

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that Wednesday's match against the Potters will go ahead and insists that everyone must pull together and continue on with their season

Harry Redknapp has confirmed that Tottenham’s Premier League home game against Stoke will go ahead as planned.

Doubts were raised in the aftermath of Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba’s on-field cardiac arrest during the two sides' FA Cup match on Saturday, with the Trotters postponing their game away to Aston Villa.

Bolton's home tie against Blackburn on Saturday remains under question, however, Redknapp has confirmed that Stoke will travel to White Hart Lane on Wednesday as originally scheduled.

The 65-year-old said: "What happened on Saturday to Fabrice Muamba was a shock to everyone."

"It is possible that the effects of this could hit some quicker than others and despite these difficult circumstances we all have to pull together and carry on with our season.

"We will be providing players with whatever support they need in order to help them move on from what has happened, while obviously always keeping Fabrice at the forefront of our minds and willing him to make a recovery.

"Fortunately, we already had a cardiologist visiting the training ground today for routine screening, so we are able to offer any player who wishes to be tested for the purpose of reassurance an additional opportunity to be screened.

“The thoughts of everyone at the Club continue to be with Fabrice Muamba, his family and Bolton Wanderers at this difficult time."

Muamba currently remains in a critical condition at the London Chest Hospital.
