Tainio on sidelines with suspected broken toe

Teemu Tainio is the latest cause for concern as injuries threaten to undermine Tottenham's final push for a place in the Champions League next season.

The Finland midfielder completed 90 minutes against Arsenal on Saturday but there are fears he has fractured a toe, with Spurs waiting for the results of a scan.

With England defender Ledley King out for the season with a broken foot, midfielder Jermaine Jenas recovering from a cracked shin and Egypt striker Mido nursing a damaged knee, the depth of Tottenham's squad will be tested for the final two games of the season, at home to Bolton and away to West Ham.

They need to win both matches to guarantee fourth place, but any slip could let in Arsenal, who have a game in hand and are just four points behind. The Gunners face Sunderland and Manchester City away, and Wigan at Highbury.

Arsene Wenger's team could deny Spurs a place in the Champions League by winning Europe's top club competition this season, regardless of where the two finish in the Premiership.

Spurs boss Martin Jol is hopeful of having players back for Sunday's clash against Bolton.

He said: 'It appears Teemu was playing with maybe a small fracture in his toe. So we will have to wait and see on that one.

'Jermaine Jenas had a lot of pressure on his shin after training on Friday. Maybe it's the start of a little hairline fracture. He could not play (against Arsenal) but hopefully he'll be okay for next week.

'I think we pulled him out at the right moment because he could have played maybe 45 minutes and then he would have been out for the season.'

Jol refuses to accept that striker Mido has played his last game for Tottenham before returning to Italian club Roma after a season-long loan.

There were reports he walked out of White Hart Lane after learning he was not selected for the defeat by Manchester United on Easter Monday, having missed the win at Everton with a groin injury.

Jol told Tottenham's official website: 'Mido couldn't even do a fitness test (for Highbury). It was too painful on his knee. It was not his groin. At first it was his groin but he came back and now it's his knee.

'Everyone knows now about Ledley King and we had to pull out Calum Davenport with a calf strain. So we had problems going into the game and I was proud of how we played.'

Dutch midfielder Edgar Davids, however, will also miss the Bolton game on Sunday after being sent off against Arsenal.
