On Tuesday Tottenham Hotspur will host Wigan Athletic at White Hart Lane in hopes of keeping pace with the Manchester Clubs at the top of league. Tottenham winger Gareth Bale, who missed the Club's FA Cup fixture with Watford due to injury will be back in the team for this Premier League match, according to Spurs' official site. Also, Ledley King should be available for selection.

Unfortunately, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe both have picked up hamstring injuries during the Watford game and are going to be doubtful for this match. Doubtful doesn't mean out, mostly because King is always doubtful and yet somehow manages to find a way to play.

In other news, Sandro has resumed full-training, but is not yet match fit. I wouldn't expect to even see him on the bench for tomorrow. He should be working up to match fitness with a Spurs XI friendly in the coming weeks. A return to first-team action shouldn't be more than a few weeks away for the Brazilian midfielder.
