Lennon, a star performer this season, hobbled off with a knee injury in the 2-2 home draw against Basel three weeks ago.

The 26-year-old sat out last weekend's 3-1 win over Manchester City after failing a fitness test but he took part in training with the rest of the squad on Wednesday.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas looks set to have a near full-strength squad to choose from for this weekend's clash at the DW Stadium.

Gareth Bale and Jermain Defoe, who had missed the last few weeks with respective ankle and pelvis problems, both came through the City game unscathed.

Younes Kaboul's comeback was delayed after he suffered a thigh strain in an U21 match against Manchester United last week but the defender is having treatment on the injury and Spurs hope he will play again before the end of term.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
