Long term Tottenham absentees Steven Pienaar and William Gallas have returned to training and could be in the reckoning for Sunday's clash with QPR. Tottenham coach Clive Allen is hopeful the players will be available for selection.

"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."
