Berbatov sidelined with groin injury

Tottenham Hotspur's nightmare start to the new season has been compounded by the news that star striker Dimitar Berbatov is to miss this weekend's clash against Derby with a groin injury.

The Bulgarian joins summer recruit Younes Kaboul on the sidelines as part of a growing Spurs injury list, and their absences come at the worst possible time after the London club opened their Premier League campaign with two defeats.

'We've had a couple more blows,' manager Martin Jol told the clubs website.

'Younes Kaboul will be out for the next three or four weeks with the hamstring injury he suffered against Everton.

'That's a real kick in the teeth and Dimitar Berbatov has a groin problem. It's an old problem and he will now visit a specialist in Germany. He will be out for a couple of weeks.'

Of his other injuries Jol added:. 'Gareth Bale is looking better.

'Our medical team have also told me that Young-Pyo Lee is up to 85% fitness and that will soon be 100 per cent.'
