Tottenham boss Redknapp admits kids will face PAOK

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he plans to play the kids tonight at Europa League opponents PAOK Salonika.

That means youngsters Yago Falque, Jake Livermore, Andros Townsend and Tom Carroll are likely to be given a chance to impress in what is expected to be a white-hot atmosphere generated by PAOK's fanatical support.

"It's not a case of prioritising a game, it's just (using) what I have got," Redknapp said.

"I couldn't bring players out here, play them on Thursday night and play the same group against Liverpool.

"If I get a few injuries I have no back up. I have nine senior, very, very good players who are injured.

"Some of them have played two international games so I wanted to change the team around. I have done that. I have not been able to use the strong group I have for this first game because they're not fit."
