[Team] Maribor vs Tottenham: Confirmed Spurs Line-up

By on October 25, 2012

Slovenian side Maribor welcome Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur for their Europa League Group J encounter tonight.

Spurs will look to register their first victory of the campaign after draws with Lazio and Panathinaikos left them lying third in the group table, and a positive result is vital tonight if the Londoners are to maintain hopes of qualifying for the next stage.

Andre Villas-Boas is without Gareth Bale, who has stayed home to spend time with his family after his partner gave birth last week, so Andros Townsend comes in on the left.

Emmanuel Adebayor is also left behind with a back injury while Michael Dawson misses out through illness. Hugo Lloris, Kyle Naughton and Tom Huddlestone all start. Here is the confirmed team:

Tottenham Team

Lloris, Walker, Caulker, Vertonghen, Naughton, Huddlestone, Sigurdsson, Sandro, Lennon, Townsend and Defoe

SUBS: Cudicini, Gallas, Dempsey, Smith, Falque, Livermore and Parrett
