Aaron Lennon is still some way away from making a return at Tottenham.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was encouraged last week as Lennon does not require an operation on his groin injury, commenting that "he's running like Linford Christie", but the 22-year-old is still in the rehabilitation stage of his comeback and has not yet joined in full training with his first-team colleagues.

It is understood Lennon is not included in plans for the Premier League trip to Wigan's DW Stadium on Sunday, when Redknapp's side face the team they defeated 9-1 earlier in the season.
