Spurs have had a real scare after Gareth Bale complained of more pain in his back during a training session, triggering concerns of a more serious problem for the Welshman.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was hoping to have Bale available for the Sunderland game but may now have to wait while they try to get a scan for Bale sooner than planned. Bale hasn’t featured since he was taken off with back pain in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle last month and it’s now possible he may be missing for longer.
The injury list is getting bigger by the day for Spurs with a host of first teamers out of action. Tottenham travel to the San Siro next week for their first leg encounter in the Champions League with AC Milan. Tottenham and Harry Redknapp will be sweating on the fitness of Bale in the mean time.
Tottenham will be also sweating on the fitness of Peter Crouch, Van der Vaart and Luka Modric for the AC Milan game next week.
