Bale, Lennon and Gallas back within two weeks

Tottenham Hotspur FC will likely be without Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon and William Gallas for next week's quarter-final second leg against FC Basel 1893 in Switzerland.

Tottenham Hotspur FC expect Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon and William Gallas "to return to training within two weeks".

All three players started, but failed to finish, Thursday night's UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg against FC Basel 1893. Winger Lennon was replaced with a knee injury after just 24 minutes of the 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane, while forward Bale (ankle) and defender Gallas (calf) both departed in the second half.

The trio underwent scans on Friday, with a subsequent club statement confirming they should all be available again within a fortnight. However, they must be considered extremely doubtful for next week's return fixture against Basel in Switzerland.
