Parker close to return to action

scott-parkerSpurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has received some good news before the game against Swansea City after learning that both Gareth Bale and Scott Parker could be fit enough to feature in the match.

Michael Dawson and Benoit Assou-Ekotto also have a chance of playing against Swansea. Spurs, 2.50 to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, are 8.00 to win the match 2-1 with Emmanuel Adebayor 6.00 to open the scoring.
Scott I think is slightly ahead of Benoit at the moment, but both of them could be involved.Andre Villas-Boas
Bale has been absent since suffering a hamstring injury against Fulham two weeks ago but may start Sunday's match on the bench, as could Assou-Ekotto and Parker.
Parker has not played so far this season due to the Achilles injury he suffered at Euro 2012 while Assou-Ekotto has been sidelined since September with a knee injury.
"Both of them are making good progress with the team," Villas-Boas said of Parker and Assou-Ekotto. "Scott I think is slightly ahead of Benoit at the moment, but both of them could be involved.
"You have to bear in mind that their absence was long so they are picking up on their fitness levels.
"Scott Parker has been out for so long and he's such an important player for us. He was amazing last season, so we've been really patient with the situation. We're glad to have him back, it was wonderful to see him out there on the (training) pitch.
"He offers other possibilities. It's good to have him on our side and good to finally count on him."
