Match Preview

Van der Vaart doubt for Spurs Rafael van der Vaart is doubtful for Tottenham's Barclays Premier League game against Wolves. The Dutch interbnational continues to struggle with the sore calf picked up during Tuesday night's 2-2 Champions League draw at Werder Bremen. Manager Harry Redknapp has "seven or eight" players carrying knocks and is set to rotate his squad, but Luka Modric (leg) is not expected to be risked, Ledley King may be rested after playing in midweek and Heurelho Gomes (groin) is still out. Jermain Defoe, Michael Dawson (both ligament damage), Jamie O'Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) are long-term absentees. Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is willing to face a barrage of abuse as his side set out to restore their battered reputation. McCarthy has this week been forced to defend his players following accusations they are an overly aggressive side after collecting seven bookings in each of their last two games, incurring a #75,000 fine from the Football Association. In last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Fulham, during which Bobby Zamora sustained a broken right leg after a fair tackle from Karl Henry, the angry Cottagers fans turned on McCarthy and his players. As referee Phil Dowd dished out the bookings, including two and a red for Christophe Berra, chants of "you're a disgrace to the Premiership" echoed around Craven Cottage. McCarthy was also personally singled out for derision, not that the robust Yorkshireman was concerned at the time, nor will he be at White Hart Lane should the Spurs fans do their worst. "Fans calling me names doesn't bother me one iota," said McCarthy. "Isn't it a strange phenomenon, though, I've never been called anything or abused by the opposition fans when we've been 3-0 down. "At Fulham, wasn't it something to do with them trying to intimidate us and put us off? "And they were only singing it because of what had been written and said in the media. "I hope Tottenham (fans) are calling me all sorts tomorrow because it means we're playing well. "But it's all water off a duck's back. Whether you like it or not is another matter to whether it affects you, and it doesn't affect me." Berra is likely to be replaced by Richard Stearman in defence. Steven Mouyokolo came through a reserve outing earlier in the week and is added to the squad, whilst Ronald Zubar is expected to be fit after missing the game at Craven Cottage with a hamstring problem.

Match Report

Spurs leave it late Tottenham produced a remarkable late comeback to win 3-1 and record their first Barclays Premier League home victory of the season as Wolves self-destructed at White Hart Lane. The visitors looked set to complete a hat-trick of victories over Spurs after Steven Fletcher had handed them a shock lead on the stroke of half-time. Despite dominating, Tottenham were becoming increasingly frustrated but were gifted an equaliser when Stephen Ward brought down Alan Hutton in the box and allowed Rafael van der Vaart to level 13 minutes from time, before substitutes Roman Pavyluchenko and Hutton completed the turnaround. Spurs, who handed Robbie Keane his first start for the club since January and recalled William Gallas, were looking to avoid the kind of Champions League hangover they suffered when they lost to Wigan in their previous home game. Wolves began with typical commitment, although Kevin Foley was adjudged to have crossed the line when he tripped Gareth Bale from behind 19 minutes in, earning the game's first caution. Seeking their first home goal of the Premier League season, Spurs finally forced Marcus Hahnemann to make a save in the 24th minute, the American sprawling to thwart Bale before Michael Mancienne and Ward threw themselves in front of Keane's follow-up. Hahnemann was called into action again six minutes later after the ball sat up perfectly for Van der Vaart to smash a volley after looping off the head of Foley. The goalkeeper got fingertips to that effort and also to Peter Crouch's 33rd-minute header following a super far-post cross from Bale. Crouch was winning almost everything in the air but it was strike partner Keane who had the best headed chance of the half six minutes before the break. Bale skinned Foley down the left and produced a cross Keane somehow nodded wide from eight yards. Tom Huddlestone was booked for handling Jarvis' attempted cross before Wolves snatched the lead when the recalled Fletcher slammed in Foley's low cross from point-blank range. Harry Redknapp was then forced to replace Younes Kaboul with Hutton, the right-back's first Spurs appearance since January. Jermaine Jenas nearly weaved his way through the entire Wolves defence in the opening moments of the second half before Jody Craddock finally robbed him. Hutton then cut inside from the right and curled a 20-yard left-footer that sailed inches wide. Wolves withdrew Jarvis for Jelle van Damme in the 54th minute before Van der Vaart bent an excellent shot wide on the turn. Keane almost produced a spectacular equaliser three minutes later, his scissors-kick from another outstanding Bale cross just failing to find the target. Wolves boss Mick McCarthy immediately threw on Dave Edwards for Fletcher to further bolster his side. Van der Vaart and Van Damme were involved in an angry 65th-minute exchange after the former clattered into the latter, earning a booking. Redknapp then replaced the disappointing Keane with Pavyluchenko before Wolves defender Richard Stearman - starting his first league game since January - went close to getting his head on David Jones' corner. Spurs were running out of ideas but Ward handed them an equaliser with 15 minutes remaining when he scythed down Hutton in full flight just inside the area. Van der Vaart sent Hahnemann the wrong way from the spot for what was his first Tottenham goal. Huddlestone sent a shot on the turn straight at Hahnemann as Spurs pushed for a winner, but Wolves were also refusing to settle for a point. They were almost caught out on the break when Van der Vaart dragged wide from 18 yards on his weaker right foot. Crouch then got a vital block in on a close-range rocket from Van Damme, who was booked for impeding Carlo Cudicini as the keeper tried to clear. Hahnemann just beat Bale to Van der Vaart's long ball before the latter was replaced for the final four minutes by Aaron Lennon. The substitution proved inspired as the winger helped set up Spurs' second goal moments later. Lennon's cross was partially cleared but played back into Huddlestone, whose shot was blocked straight to Pavyluchenko for the simplest of finishes. Pavyluchenko ripped off his shirt and ran to the jubilant Spurs fans to celebrate, earning himself a booking, while Hahnemann was also cautioned for dissent. Wolves sent on Marcus Bent for Mancienne but there was worse to come for the visitors in stoppage time as a mix-up between Stearman and Hahnemann allowed Hutton to nip in and bundle the ball home.
