Former Tottenham striker Paul Walsh feels fit-again Jermain Defoe can make the difference in the top four race.

Walsh thinks the striker, who missed the previous three games with a pelvis problem, should start Saturday's game away at Wigan ahead of Emmanuel Adebayor, who has drawn criticism for his performances in recent weeks.

"I think it will be Defoe who starts," he said. "Now you have a glad to be back, confident Defoe going into the Wigan game. That might be what Tottenham need."
