Spurs goalkeeper Brad Friedel will pick up a Merit Award by the Premier League this weekend for 300 consecutive games between the posts.

Brad Friedel is expected to be given an award by the Premier League this weekend to mark his record-breaking 300th consecutive appearance.

The goalkeeper will claim the Merit Award if he features for Tottenham Hotspur at Queens Park Rangers later today (Saturday).

The 40-year-old started his run of matches while at Blackburn Rovers in 2004.

Friedel, who is the league's oldest player, has said that a regime of yoga has helped him to stay fit as he enters middle age.
