UK Today News: Bolton Vs Tottenham : Tottenham hotspurs look forward for their first ever win at Reebok Stadium
Bolton Vs Tottenham 12:45 GMT- The scene is set for a mouth watering encounter at the Reebok Stadium. Tottenham have just come off a stunning victory over title holders Inter Milan in the Champions League.
That said, the hotspurs are brimming with confidence after they thrashed Rafa Benitez’s side 3-1 at White Hart Lane on Tuesday. Bolton manager Owen coyle comes of a defeat handed to them by a late goal from Liverpool.
Tottenham go into this encounter exuding confidence and live up to the billing they have so recently created, by punishing Inter Milan for not coming out of their blocks. The Italians were beaten all ends up by the Hotspurs.
Meanwhile Welsh marksman Gareth Bale is having a golden moment in his career, as he looks set to be a permanent fixture at white hart lane. Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has asked his players to be on their A-game for the upcoming encounter at the Reebok Stadium, surprisingly Tottenham have never won a match at the Reebok Stadium.
Gareth Bale and co. will be itching to change this statistic and creating history as they look forward to win their first match at the Reebok Stadium. The visitors have not even won a single game out of their last 10 league games here.
Owen Coyle would be urging his players to help maintain the Wanderers solid home record against the Hotspurs. The Hotspurs managed to beat Inter Milan even though they have been plagued with injury problems since the start of the season. Rafael van der Vaart will miss out for Spurs with a hamstring injury.
Dutch midfielder Van der Vaart aggravated the problem during the The Inter Milan victory, Aaron Lennon is also doubtful with a hamstring injury, goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes returns from suspension, while captain Ledley King and Vedran Corluka (both groin) are still out.
Jermain Defoe, Michael Dawson (both ligament damage), Jamie O’Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) are long-term absentees. Even as so many players are struggling with injury problems Tottenham hotspurs need to come up trumps if they are entertaining thoughts of a win against wanderers at the Reebok Stadium.
Tottenham look more likely to change this statistic today as they take on the Wanderers. Even though, Tottenham have’nt managed to beat the Wanderers at Reebok. The Wanderers wouldn’t be to keen on giving up their 100% record against the hotspurs at home. Expect a screamer. Prediction for this match would be 2-0 Tottenham.
