Good news for Tottenham as Bale returns to training

Gareth Bale is a chance to return to the Tottenham line-up for this weekend's home clash with Stoke City.

The Welsh winger has missed the past three Spurs fixtures after sustaining a hamstring injury in the December win at Fulham but is a chance to take on the Potters on Saturday.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas also suggested that defender Michael Dawson may return from a similar injury whilst Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Scott Parker are making strong recoveries from their problems.

"It's good news," Villas-Boas said of Bale. "First for the player because he wants to be back in the group and he's made a tremendous recovery. He's worked extremely hard.

"Michael was injured in the same game as Gareth and they've both returned to training. It's great to have them back.

"Benoit Assou-Ekotto is also recovering his fitness, along with Scott Parker. Scott is a little ahead of Benoit, but he's getting back into shape and back into contention."
