Roman to miss Greek clash

Published Add your comment

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko looks set for a spell on the sidelines after injuring his knee in a freak accident involving Andros Townsend.

Pavlyuchenko has not started a Barclays Premier League game this season, but he has enjoyed a run of appearances in the Europa League and was expected to lead the line in Wednesday night's Group A clash against Greek side PAOK Salonika.

That was until the Russian clashed with young winger Townsend in a training ground accident on Monday that means manager Harry Redknapp is likely to give Jermain Defoe a starting berth, when he would have liked to have rested the England star. "There is no-one else really because Pav did his knee yesterday," Redknapp said.
