Defoe: Spurs can ride out Bale absence

Published 1 Comments

Jermain Defoe is convinced Tottenham will be able to cope without Gareth Bale for the next two weeks after the Tottenham winger suffered a hamstring injury in Saturday's 3-0 win over Fulham.

Tottenham moved level with third-placed Chelsea thanks to an impressive victory, which came courtesy of two goals from Defoe and another from Sandro. But the gloss was taken off the win - Tottenham's third in a row - due to hamstring injuries to Bale and captain Michael Dawson.

"Obviously losing Gaz is a massive blow for the team," Defoe told Absolute Radio. "Because of the way he plays you can't really replace a player like that, but at the same time I think someone else can come in."
