Double injury boost for Spurs

19 Jan 2009 - 14:35:54

Tottenham Hotspur have received a double injury boost with the news that neither Ledley King nor Roman Pavlyuchenko picked up serious problems against Portsmouth.

King limped off in the first half of Sunday's 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane with a hamstring injury and afterwards manager Harry Redknapp admitted the prognosis was not good.

Russia striker Pavlyuchenko also had to be replaced after taking a heavy blow to an ankle and being stretchered off.

But despite fears that both players could be facing lengthy spells on the sidelines, scans have revealed only minor problems.

"Following examinations today (Monday), it has been determined that Ledley King has suffered a minor hamstring strain," read a club statement.

"The centre-back was forced off with the injury during the first half of our draw with Portsmouth.

"Meanwhile, Roman Pavlyuchenko is expected to recover from his ankle injury sustained yesterday to be in contention for Wednesday's League Cup semi-final second leg against Burnley."
