In-form Defoe doubtful for Spurs and England

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has suffered an injury blow and looks set to miss Saturday's trip to Bolton, while he could also drop out of Fabio Capello's England squad.

Defoe sustained a broken hand in the 5-0 romp against Burnley at White Hart Lane last weekend and Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has admitted his concern over the in-form striker, with Capello due to name his squad for the final World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Belarus on Sunday.

Redknapp said: "He is struggling. Jermain dislocated two fingers against Burnley last Saturday and they couldn't get them back in. But he has also fractured his hand. He spent all Saturday night in hospital and is struggling. Hopefully, he'll be OK for England but we'll have to wait and see."

Defoe's injury could hand Peter Crouch a starting role against Bolton on Saturday, with the giant striker previously being kept out of the side by his former Pompey team-mate and Robbie Keane.

Redknapp has assured Crouch he will have a key role to play this season and admitted he is a strong contender to start at the Reebok Stadium.

He added: "Peter will get the opportunity to play plenty of games this year. Next is away to Bolton - a big strong team. Set plays, we have got to be prepared for that. Last week we went with a small team, next week I will probably pick a bigger team."
