Harry Redknapp is able to call on fit again duo Emmanuel Adebayor and Younes Kaboul for Tottenham's game against Blackburn, but Scott Parker misses out.

Tottenham Hotspur's bid for a top-four finish has been boosted by the double return of Emmanuel Adebayor and Younes Kaboul for this afternoon's match against Blackburn Rovers at White Hart Lane.

Adebayor replaces Jermain Defoe in attack with Kaboul partnering captain for the day William Gallas in the centre of defence.

Scott Parker misses out through injury and is replaced by Aaron Lennon, with Ledley King and Louis Saha fit enough for places on the bench.

With Benoit Assou-Ekotto ruled out for the remainder of the season, Danny Rose is given a start at left back.

Meanwhile Steve Kean has the luxury of naming an unchanged lineup from Rovers' 2-0 win over Norwich last weekend.

Goalkeeper Paul Robinson faces his former club while rumoured Spurs target Junior Hoilett continues to support Yakubu in attack.

Tottenham: Friedel; Walker, Gallas, Kaboul, Rose; Lennon, Modric, Sandro, Bale; Van der Vaart; Adebayor.

Blackburn: Robinson; Orr, Dann, Givet, Marcus Olsson; Lowe, Dunn, Formica, Pedersen; Hoilett; Yakubu.
