Tottenham have been given a boost with news that David Bentley is back in full training after a groin injury.

The 25-year old was in good form on the right wing for Spurs before the injury and now he is close to full fitness is a chance to make the trip to Stoke on the weekend.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has persisted with Bentley and gave him a chance when right winger Aaron Lennon went down with a groin injury of his own and his performances did not disappoint.

And Bentley's imminent return comes at a good time personally with the serious injury to David Beckham and the ongoing problem Lennon is experiencing, giving him a realistic chance of being selected for Fabio Capello's England squad for the World Cup.
