Bassong set for key role

28 September 2010 04:30
Tottenham could go into the Champions League clash with FC Twente with Sebastien Bassong as their only recognised centre-half. Captain Ledley King (knee and groin) remains doubtful for Spurs' second Group A clash despite training, while Younes Kaboul suffered a recurrence of his hamstring problem and looks set to miss out. Goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes could make his comeback after more than a month out with a groin injury, Benoit Assou-Ekotto has shaken off a knee problem, but William Gallas (groin) is still out, and Jermain Defoe, Michael Dawson (both ligament damage), Jamie O'Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) are long-term absentees.
