Tottenham Hotspur have suffered a blow with the news that Jermaine Jenas is out of their crucial derby clash with Arsenal on Saturday.
The England midfielder has suffered shin injury during training on late on Friday and he has been forced to pull out of the clash at Highbury.
"He took a kick to his shin in training and he won't recover in time. It's too sore," said a disappointed Spurs boss Martin Jol.
Spurs are still sweating over the fitness of both Teemu Tainio and Edgar Davids, so Jol could be faced with something of a midfield crisis ahead of his biggest game since taking charge.
Egyptian ace Mido is also due to undergo a fitness test on his groin problem on Saturday.
