Van der Vaart and King miss out

19 October 2010 08:00
Tottenham will be without new talisman Rafael van der Vaart and captain Ledley King for Wednesday night's Champions League clash with Inter Milan. Summer signing Van der Vaart serves a one-match ban following his sending-off in Spurs' last Group A outing against FC Twente, while King is out with a groin injury - though he would have been rested anyway. Manager Harry Redknapp therefore hopes William Gallas feels no ill effects from his first game for a month on Saturday, while Younes Kaboul (hamstring) is still a doubt and Sandro is ineligible, joining long-term absentees Jermain Defoe, Michael Dawson (both ligament damage), Jamie O'Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) on the sidelines.
