Tottenham coach Clive Allen has confirmed that Steven Pienaar and William Gallas are both training with Spurs again, and the pair might be in contention for selection against QPR at the weekend.

Pienaar and Gallas have both missed the start of the season, with the former undergoing groin surgery, and the latter suffering from an ongoing calf injury.

But in news that will give Tottenham even more depth as they get closer to a fully-fit squad, Allen has revealed that the pair are getting back to their best.

"We're pretty much as we were at the weekend," Allen told when asked about Sunday's selections for the side.

"There's one or two players coming back who are joining in. Steven Pienaar and William Gallas are back in training, which is good, so we'll hopefully have one or two more to select from on Sunday.

"I don't know if William will play but he could well be involved, he may make the bench. It just depends on the reaction to his training this week."

Tottenham are currently fifth in the Barclays Premier League table, and have won five of their last six matches. A home win against QPR on Sunday would put more pressure on a top four spot, and keep up the good work that the squad have been putting in to show that they’re serious about challenging for a place in the Champions League next season.

And with Pienaar and Gallas back in action, Spurs will have extra options in their midfield and defence to keep challenging the big five.
