Tottenham boss Conte upbeat on Romero Skipp injuries

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has delivered positive injury updates for Cristian Romero and Oliver Skipp.

Romero was reportedly set for a long stint on the sidelines, but Conte says it is only a little problem, while Skipp is back running after an injury lay-off.

"Cristian [Romero] had a little problem during the game against Chelsea in the final part of the game, but it's a little problem," Conte told reporters ahead of the clash with Wolves on Friday.

"After the game he started to feel a bit of pain in his adductor. We checked him, and honestly the player wanted to give his availability but in this type of situation especially as we have a lot of games to play, it would be stupid to take a risk. For this reason for the game against Wolverhampton he's not available.

"The other player not available for Wolverhampton is [Oliver] Skipp but good news about him because today or tomorrow he will run again. This is really good news. I hope this player to be a bit lucky because since January he started to have a problem.

"But I think hopefully he will be ready quickly. We need his performance, he's a really good guy, and for sure he's suffering a lot to stay outside, but I think for the period where we have to play a lot of games he will be available, which is really good news for us."
