Tottenham Hotspur need to snatch three points from Blackburn Rovers on Sunday in order to keep their hopes of reaching fourth spot alive.

Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to get back on course following a disappointing run in the Premier League, which has left them three points adrift of fourth place.

The North London side take on Blackburn Rovers, who aim to climb out of the relegation zone with a victory at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Harry Redknapp could implement a defensive partnership consisting of William Gallas and Ledley King, with Rafael van der Vaart and Emmanuel Adebayor starting up front.

Meanwhile, Steve Kean should start Junior Hoilett following the Canadian's impressive strike in Blackburn's 2-0 win over Norwich City at the weekend.

Jason Lowe and David Dunn should line the midfield with Morten Gamst Pederson and Steven N'Zonzi occupying the wings.

Current form:

Tottenham: WWDLLL
Blackburn: LLLLLW

Possible lineups:

Tottenham: Friedel; Walker, Gallas, King, Rose; Bale, Parker, Modric, Lennon; Van der Vaart; Adebayor

Blackburn: Robinson; Orr, Dann, Givet, Marcuss Olsson; Pederson, Lowe, N'Zonzi, Dunn, Hoilett; Yakubu

Sports Mole says: 2-0
