Spurs could have an entire team out injured and only one fit striker for the visit of Rovers.

Eight players are definitely sidelined, with a further three rated doubtful, including Tom Huddlestone (ankle), Roman Pavlyuchenko (back) and David Bentley (calf).

Robbie Keane (ankle) and Aaron Lennon (hamstring) remain sidelined, and Giovani dos Santos (groin) is also out, joining captain Ledley King (groin), Jermain Defoe, Michael Dawson (both ligament damage), Jamie O'Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) in the treatment room.

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has no fresh injury concerns.
