Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has said that he will make a late decision regarding the participation of winger Aaron Lennon in the match against Bolton on Wednesday night. The loss of Aaron Lennon from the first team action has been viewed as one of the reasons for Tottenham’s serious dip in form over the last couple of weeks. However, the England winger has returned to first team action only recently, which has put his participation in the match against Bolton in doubt. Following the 4-0 defeat of Newcastle during the weekend, Tottenham can move into pole position with a win over Bolton.
Along with Aaron Lennon, players like Scott Parker and Louis Saha are also struggling to make it to the game. However, Harry Redknapp will be satisfied with the performances of his players away from home. Due to the increased space away from home, Tottenham find it extremely easy to hit teams on the counter-attack. Due to the presence of Gareth Bale, there are likely to miss the services of Aaron Lennon, who is one of the fastest players in the Premier league. Tottenham will have only two matches following the Bolton encounter. Hence, Redknapp will be aware of the fact that any dropped points will be extremely costly.
“Bolton away is always tough. We’ve been there enough times over the years and it’s always a difficult place to go. They are playing well, Owen (Coyle, manager) has got them going at the moment. It will be a hard game but we’ve got to go there and be positive. You can’t predict results. Manchester United had an eight-point lead after (Manchester) City got beat at Arsenal, you thought that was the end of them, you thought it was all over. You just can’t tell,” Redknapp said about the Bolton game.
