West Bromwich Albion travel to White Hart Lane tomorrow evening to conclude a Christmas and New Year program that has seen them pick up 4 points from three games. A win away to Newcastle United, and a 0-0 draw at home to Manchester City make up the points so far, and The Baggies will be looking to increase that total tomorrow after New Years day defeat at home to Everton.
Albion have doubts over skipper Chris Brunt, who limped off during the New Years day defeat at home to Everton, and striker Shane Long also looks doubtful as he struggles to over come a back injury. Jonas Olsson is a definite absentee for this fixture, with defender Craig Dawson expected to start in his place again.
Spurs remain without Aaron Lennon, Tom Huddlestone and Ledley King.
Neither team won an adantage over the other last season, with both games ending in score draws. This fixture last year finished 2-2, with the Hawthorns fixture finishing one all.
The Baggies face a tough test tomorrow evening at White Hart Lane. Spurs have conceded only 3 goals on home turf in their last 7 outings, and have scored in all of their last seventeen Premier League outings. In fact West Brom have not won at White Hart Lane since 1984. But that is unlikely to bother Baggies gaffer Roy Hodgson, who has seen his side pick up 14 points away from home this season - more than they have managed so far at the Hawthorns.
