Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has described club captain Ledley King's status for this weekend's match against Manchester City as "doubtful". King has not been training, which isn't unusual for the oft-injured defender, but Harry says there is a small possibility King could turn up at the clubs final pre-match training session and say that he's good to go. Speaking to the Club's official site, Harry said:

"He’s not fit to train today. He can’t, because of his knee, but he may well come out tomorrow morning, so I wouldn’t write him off."

"This is no different to normal. If he comes out tomorrow morning and says ‘I’m okay’, then he’ll play Sunday, if I pick him. That’s how it works. It's amazing, really. It defies everything."

In other injury news, William Gallas and Sandro are both running again following their calf injuries. Both are said to be at about 60%, so a return to action may still be some way off. Long-term injury Tom Huddlestone has also stepped up his rehabilitation and has begun doing work outside.

Apart from that Tottenham Hotspur seem to be healthy, which is very good as Spurs head into the most difficult stretch of their schedule. You can never tell with Ledley, but I won't be surprised if King and Dawson are the pairing in central defense come Sunday.
