Match Preview

Redknapp faced with Lennon poser Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will decide whether to recall Aaron Lennon for the FA Cup clash against Bolton after the winger trained all weekend in an attempt to overcome the hamstring injury which has sidelined him for the last three weeks. Captain Ledley King (knee) could be recalled after missing Saturday's 0-0 draw at Chelsea but defender Michael Dawson (ankle), goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes (knee), and midfielder Tom Huddlestone (ankle) are out. Nine days ago the original encounter was abandoned after 41 minutes following the on-pitch cardiac arrest of Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba. The football world has united to get behind the 23-year-old as he continues to make a steady recovery that seemed highly improbable when he was rushed to hospital amid horrifying scenes at the north London ground. There will be a minute's applause before the game and players from both sides will sign their shirts afterwards and auction them on ebay, with the proceeds going to the London Chest Hospital, where Muamba is being treated, and three charities. Redknapp himself admitted Muamba's collapse had "knocked him flat", but he also knows what is at stake on the pitch. "It (the FA Cup) is a big thing for us, definitely," said Redknapp, who won the competition with Portsmouth in 2008. "I'd be bitterly disappointed if we didn't make the semi-final now. It's a game we want to win. "We want Champions League football but also I want an FA Cup final. "I want to win the cup and qualify for the Champions League as well. That's the aim." Owen Coyle has admitted there is no way of knowing how his Bolton players will react on their return to White Hart Lane. News of further improvement in Muamba's condition has offered plenty of encouragement. From Coyle's amusing confirmation that Muamba had been well enough to start watching the Sunday morning edition of Match of the Day, only to fall asleep with his team-mates leading 2-0 against Blackburn, to the even more uplifting bulletin from the London Chest Hospital that the 23-year-old has been out of bed and eating, today's updates have been totally positive. However, it remains to be seen whether that alone will insulate Bolton's players from the mental problems that could be triggered by visiting the same ground on which Muamba suffered his cardiac arrest nine days ago, and entering the dressing room in which so many were in floods of tears as they feared the worst for their friend and colleague. "Because Fabrice is getting better, that allows us to play the match," said Coyle. "If it was different circumstances, it might be a different conversation. "The great thing is that he is getting better. "We will do our best, as we always try to do. Will it be emotional? Of course. But I can't say how it is going to be until we are physically there." Coyle and chairman Phil Gartside will be part of a small Bolton delegation that intends to visit Muamba tomorrow, the first Wanderers representation since club doctor Jonathan Tobin revealed the midfielder's heart had stopped beating for 78 minutes before medical staff finally managed to get it started. Such visits are crucial, according to the Bolton boss, for the morale within his squad. "Everyone would want to be there but that would be impossible," said Coyle. "Fabrice's recovery is paramount but the players who do go can filter back the news. That will help. "Fabrice is not just a team-mate and a colleague. He is a dear friend to those lads. They want to know he is getting better."
