Becchio back for Spurs cup clash

The Argentinian was rested for the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Carlisle when Mike Grella partnered leading goalscorer Jermaine Beckford. But the South American proved a handful alongside Beckford at Manchester United in the previous round and is likely to return. Central defender Patrick Kisnorbo could also be back in contention after missing out in midweek - Leigh Bromby stepped up to partner Richard Naylor in central defence - while goalkeeper Shane Higgs is still dogged by a thigh problem, so Casper Ankergren will continue. It will be the first meeting between the two sides in over six years. Tottenham beat Leeds at Elland Road 1-0 in a Premier League game in January 2004 after winning at White Hart Lane 2-1 the previous August. The match kicks off at 5.15pm.
