Robbie Keane in action in the corresponding game of last season This is just the fourth meeting between these two clubs. When Spurs first met Wigan at the JJB stadium in November, 2005, Wigan were in second place in the Premiership table after 12 games, and Spurs were sixth. How Paul Jewell would beg for such a situation now! On that occasion, Spurs won 2-1 with goals by Robbie Keane and a winner by Edgar Davids in the 77th minute.

Co-incidentally, Spurs played Wigan again on 26th November this season, when we beat them 3-1 at White Hart Lane with goals from Defoe, Berbatov and Lennon. Berbatov's goal was a cracker, as he gave Spurs a lead just before the interval with a cracking shot that beat Kirkland in the top corner.

With that result, Wigan slipped back into the bottom half of the table. They had climbed there on the back of a run of four consecutive wins and a draw, but their form failed them drastically, as they gradually fell into the relegation dogfight. A couple of their recent results (wins against Newcastle and at Manchester City) have renewed hope of survival, and West Ham's disastrous loss today at Bramall Lane will have given Jewell's side even more vigour, and determination to extend the game between themselves and Charlton, who also play tomorrow.

Spurs will have a great battle on their hands, and despite the return of Ricardo Rocha, and the inclusion of Ledley King in the squad, surely their defence will be a somewhat cobbled formation, with Paul Stalteri still a doubt with his hip injury.

Spurs (and we fans) need to bounce back from Thursday night's ejection from Europe, and need all three points to lift themselves back above Portsmouth and Reading, who won today. A win would put us three points behind Bolton (and maybe Everton too, depending on their result), and would keep us in the race for Europe. Defeat would heavily deflate our morale and chances, with the gooners to come to the Lane next week. Mind you, I do strongly fancy us to win that one!

It's one game at a time though, and tough to call this match at the JJB. I'll go for a 2-1 to Spurs, but I don't feel confident at all.
