Jonathan Woodgate has given Harry Redknapp a welcome selection headache by returning to full training.
The defender has yet to make an appearance for Tottenham this term after picking up a groin problem in the early part of pre-season.
He has also suffered one or two setbacks but is now available for selection again after taking part in a practice match on Tuesday.
Redknapp is delighted to have Woodgate at his disposal once more but could face a tricky decision this weekend with all his centre-backs finding their fitness at the same time.
Ledley King has recovered from the hamstring injury he sustained against Chelsea and Michael Dawson is also in the frame after a spell on the sidelines.
Summer signing Sebastien Bassong has been partnered by Tom Huddlestone in recent matches and Redknapp is relieved to have a few other alternatives.
"Jonathan training again is great news for us. It looks like Ledley will be okay as well, so that gives us options and that's what we need," Redknapp told the club's official website.
"Suddenly we've three more fantastic centre-halves available. That makes us stronger."
