Scott Parker believes the players of Tottenham and Bolton will be in the right frame of mind to put on a cracking FA Cup tie tonight as White Hart Lane hosts the rescheduled quarter-final clash that had to be abandoned 10 days ago following Fabrice Muamba's horrifying cardiac arrest.

Many fans and players at the north London ground feared the worst when Muamba was carried off the pitch on a stretcher and rushed to hospital, but the Bolton midfielder is now eating and speaking and also got out of bed for the first time yesterday.

Asked if the players were in the right frame of mind for the game, Parker said: "I think so. Fabrice's recovery has probably helped us a lot and I'm sure it's helped Bolton as well. Obviously it was a little bit tricky after what happened but I think the lads are fine now because we hear Fabrice is doing pretty well, which is pleasing."
