Spurs boss AVB confident Bale will keep cool against Stoke's Adam

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is confident Gareth Bale will keep his cool against Stoke City today.

Villas-Boas is braced for a Brawl Britannia - but admits he does not expect Charlie Adam to go looking for Bale - despite their previous.

The Spurs star accused the Scot of deliberately trying to injure him in a pre-season clash with Liverpool in Baltimore last summer.

AVB added: "I don't think it will have an impact on Gareth.

"After the player acknowledged he made a bad tackle, it won't happen again."
