Worthington Cup Final Team News

Spurs duo cleared to face Blackburn at Millennium Stadium

Tottenham appear to have avoided a defensive injury crisis after Anthony Gardner and Goran Bunjevcevic returned to action for the reserves on Wednesday.

Gardner had been out for a month with a knee injury and Bunjevcevic for 10 weeks with thigh and knee trouble but both played the full 90 minutes at Coventry.

Darren Anderton and Ledley King are also expected to be fit after they missed last weekend's victory over Tranmere with a hamstring injury and tonsillitis respectively.

Ben Thatcher is fit after picking up a knock, although he is likely to be on the bench, but Sergei Rebrov has not trained all week because of an Achilles problem. Dean Richards is cup-tied.

Blackburn striker Andy Cole is expected to recover from his stomach bug in time for the final.

Cole pulled out of Thursday's press conference because he was unwell, but it is only a 24-hour bug and Blackburn are confident he will be ready for Sunday.

Rovers can ill afford to lose Cole and they are already without the suspended Garry Flitcroft, Tugay and Craig Short, while Lucas Neill is ineligible.

Stig Inge Bjornebye should recover from flu, while Spanish striker Yordi, signed on loan from Real Zaragoza this week, will make his debut at some stage.

Tottenham (from): Sullivan, Perry, King, Gardner, Taricco, Sherwood, Anderton, Poyet, Ziege, Sheringham, Ferdinand, Iversen, Davies, Rebrov, Etherington, Thatcher, Leonhardsen, Thelwell, Bunjevcevic, Keller.

Blackburn (from): Friedel, Kelly, Curtis, Berg, Bjornebye, Dunn, Cole, Jansen, Duff, Hughes, Johansson, Hignett, Mahon, Gillespie, Taylor, Yordi, Douglas.
