Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has admitted he may be without Scott Parker, amongst others, tomorrow night.


The Spurs boss was speaking ahead of their crucial clash with Everton at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.


Parker missed the games against West Brom and Cheltenham Town and Redknapp doesn’t think he will make Wednesday’s game.


“Scott is struggling, he's doubtful. In fact, he's very doubtful,” said the Spurs chief.


The former West Ham United midfielder has been a key component in Tottenham’s recent success, which has taken them to third in the table.


A win against the Toffees would see Redknapp’s side move eight point ahead of Chelsea in fourth and nine ahead of fierce rivals Arsenal in fifth.


There was some slightly better news concerning club captain Ledley King, whose latest injury had Tottenham staff fearing a lengthy lay-off.


It now appears it wasn’t as bad as first thought, but King will join William Gallas and Sandro on the injured list for now.


The latter two are expected to be missing for the next couple of weeks with calf injuries.


“We've one or two injuries. Ledley King has had a scan on his hamstring injury and it's not too bad, but he's not fit,” concluded Redknapp.


Tottenham’s fixture with Everton was supposed to be the on the opening weekend of the season but was cancelled due to the civil unrest in the area at the time.
