PICTURE: Key Spurs midfielder returns from injury!

Andros Townsend is closing in on a return from a hamstring injury for Tottenham.

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Tim Sherwood has confirmed winger Andros Townsend is back in contention to face Everton in the Premier League this weekend.

Townsend has been in the treatment room ever since he picked up a hamstring problem last December, which put an abrupt halt to an impressive first part of the season.

The England international has missed nine matches and even if he only makes the subs bench, he’ll provide a positive impact option for Sherwood if the Toffees start to get on top at White Hart Lane.

Townsend will be very determined to add to the one goal and single assist he’s produced in the Premier League this season. It’s just a case of when it becomes safe for Sherwood to fully let him off the leash to cause chaos.
