Sports Mole previews Tottenham Hostpur's Premier League clash with Newcastle United.

Newcastle United have won their last two league games and travel to White Hart Lane on Saturday to face a Tottenham Hotspur side struggling for goals.

Spurs have had three draws in their last four league games but did take all three points last Sunday away to West Bromwich Albion.

Spurs' quest for goals has not been helped by the news that Jermain Defoe will be out for three weeks and Emmanuel Adebayor is to undergo a fitness test.

Newcastle remain without Hatem Ben Arfa and Danny Simpson for the trip to Tottenham.
