Tottenham Hotspur head North to the Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers this today in what is certainly a very important game for both teams. Tottenham are fighting hard for a Champions League position and Wolves are doing everything they can avoid the drop. 

Football has a funny way of throwing up fixtures that reflect recent events and Sunday's match will be no different as both teams pay tribute to the recently deceased Dean Richards. Richards passed away last Saturday at just 36 years old, and the player is sure to be honoured by two sides he served during his 13-year career.

Alan Hutton returns from the doghouse and Luka Modric looks set to play out on the left wing with Sandro partnering Jermaine Jenas in midfield. Additionally, Gareth Bale is on the bench and Harry Redknapp seems set to test his fitness with a late game runout before Tuesday.

Wolves are without Spurs loanee Jamie O'Hara for this game so Adam Hammill fills his slot in midfield.

Tottenham Hotspur Lineup (4-4-2): Gomes; Assou-Ekotto, Dawson, Gallas, Hutton; Modric, Sandro, Jenas, Pienaar; Pavlyuchenko, Defoe

Wolverhampton Wanderers Lineup (4-4-1-1):Hennessey; Ward, Henry, Stearman, Elokobi; Milijas, Hammill, Jarvis, Berra; Foley; Doyle
