King facing yet more time on sidelines

Tottenham captain Ledley King has suffered further complications in his return from injury and requires another scan on his bruised foot before the Carling Cup clash against Arsenal.

The 26-year-old was earmarked for the second leg of the semi-final this Wednesday, at the Emirates Stadium, but will have a scan tomorrow on the same foot which caused him to miss the final part of last season.

'It's been frustrating,' admitted King. 'It's hard to put a finger on the time scale.'

The centre-back's last game was against Aston Villa on Boxing Day, and Spurs have not won in the Premiership since.

The injury was only thought to be minor at the time, but King still has problems a month after picking up the complaint.

'He will go for a scan again,' confirmed Tottenham manager Martin Jol. 'He is still in pain - that is the problem.'

Jol was not expecting the injury to persist as it has.

'He had a bruised foot - that is normally two weeks,' he said. 'The situation is that there is still bruising on his foot - that is a bit strange, because normally it is over in two weeks.

'We hope there is nothing there. Sometimes you're better to break something than have bruising. He trained last week and did everything and went back to the medical staff to tell them he still had pain.'

Jol is wary of rushing the England international back, with Anthony Gardner or Ricardo Rocha as back-up to partner Michael Dawson in the heart of Spurs' defence.

'We can't push him; he can't push himself, because if we do and you get a break that is another problem,' said the Spurs boss. 'If it is only bruising it should be better - but it isn't, so we have to scan him again.'

Dimitar Berbatov is out of the Arsenal clash and has travelled to Germany to see specialist Hans Muller-Wolfhart about his groin injury, while Jol is waiting for an assessment of Mido's back injury - suffered in yesterday's FA Cup victory over Southend.

Goalkeeper Paul Robinson had a back complaint and was rested at the weekend but he will be ready for the Emirates Stadium.
