Dawson to miss Spurs run-in

Tottenham Hotspur and England defender Michael Dawson will miss the rest of the season and the summer's European Championships after an ankle injury ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

The 28-year-old has made just 13 appearances this term for Spurs following an Achilles injury earlier in the season, and a subsequent ankle ligament problem, which will see him miss 12 weeks of action.

Dawson, with four England caps to his name, was considered a genuine contender to feature in this summer's European Championships, but is likely to miss out due to his latest injury setback.

Despite making 36 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham last term, Dawson missed a substantial portion of the season with a knee ligament injury.

The blow comes at a crucial part of the season for Harry Redknapp who, after seeing his side's brief flirtation with the title fail to materialise, has north London rivals Arsenal hot on his tail for fourth, just four points behind with 11 games left.

The former Nottingham Forest defender will also miss the rest of Spurs' FA Cup campaign, which sees them take on Bolton Wanderers in the quarter-finals.

Redknapp has however been boosted by the news that fellow defender William Gallas is ready to return against Everton, after featuring just nine times this term.
