Tottenham have been handed a fitness fillip with the news several of their players are making positive strides in their respective rehabilitations.

Beleaguered boss Martin Jol has not enjoyed the best of luck with regards injuries this term but it does now look as though things could be turning in the capital.

Record signing Darren Bent has returned to training following a thigh injury, while Anthony Gardner and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are looking sharp in their bids to recover from groin and knee problems respectively.

"It's very positive news for us," Jol told the club's official website.

"Darren Bent is back and looked in good form. He did everything in training with us.

"Benoit Ekotto and Anthony Gardner are also back and that gives us more options. I feel it's an exciting time for us."

Fitness tonic

While Jol will be delighted to welcome back the aforementioned trio, it is the imminent return of Aaron Lennon that is most exciting the Dutchman.

The England flyer lacks match sharpness but having stepped up his training, could soon be ready for a first-team return.

"We've got Aaron Lennon back as well and don't forget him! He trained last week and is looking good, although he lacks a bit of match fitness so that's a decision we have to make."
