Tottenham centre-back Michael Dawson has suffered a partially torn ankle ligament and is expected to be out for up to three weeks.
The 25-year-old was carried off on a stretcher against Newcastle last weekend after falling awkwardly on his left foot and is now facing a race to be fit for Spurs' final two matches of the Barclays Premier League season.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has Roman Pavlyuchenko out with a back problem as well but striker Jermain Defoe is coming back from a foot injury.
