Spurs pair set to return

Pienaar could start and Gallas possible substitute

William Gallas: and Steven Pienaar are available for selection after recovering from respective injuries.

Tottenham coach Clive Allen has revealed long-term absentees Steven Pienaar and William Gallas could be in contention to face QPR this Sunday after the pair returned to training.

South Africa midfielder Pienaar underwent groin surgery in the summer and French defender Gallas has been battling calf injuries, resulting in them both missing the start of the season.

But Allen is hopeful the players will be available for selection as Spurs will look to extend their unbeaten run to seven games against Rangers on the back of a 2-1 victory over Blackburn.

"We're pretty much as we were at the weekend," Allen told London24.com.

"There's one or two players coming back who are joining in.

"Steven Pienaar and William Gallas are back in training, which is good, so we'll hopefully have one or two more to select from on Sunday.

"I don't know if William will play but he could well be involved, he may make the bench. It just depends on the reaction to his training this week."
