Tottenham Hotspur's defensive crisis has seen Sebastien Bassong as the only fit centre-back named in the Champions League squad to face FC Twente tomorrow.
Manager Harry Redknapp has already seen Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson struck down by long-term injuries. They were recently joined by Younes Kaboul and William Gallas on the sidelines, while question marks hover over the condition of Ledley King and Vedran Corluka.
In better news, goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is expected to return to the fold. Left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto has also shaken off a knee knock.
Tottenham (from): Gomes, Cudicini, King, Hutton, Bale, Bassong, Corluka, Jenas, Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Lennon, Palacios, Kranjcar, Bentley, Van der Vaart, Dos Santos, Crouch, Keane, Pavyluchenko, Pletikosa.
