A police strike in Holland has placed a temporary question mark against Tottenham's vital Uefa Cup second leg clash in Eindhoven on Wednesday night.

But today the club said that the game would go ahead.

Concerns were raised by Spurs fans who had already booked travel to the game after PSV's match against Ajax was postponed because of the strike on Sunday.

But Tottenham say: "At this point, our Uefa Cup return leg against PSV in Eindhoven on Wednesday night remains unaffected.

"We shall update fans should the position change."

Tottenham are 1-0 down from the first leg but received the tonic they needed before the game after disappointing results by crushing West Ham 4-0 on Saturday. Gilberto, who made the crucial error that allowed PSV in for the only goal of the game in last week's first leg, was among the scorers on Saturday and will almost certainly feature in the squad.

Meanwhile, rumours of two new summer signings at the Lane are rekindling memories of the days of Argentinian stars Ardiles and Villa.

Spurs are being linked to £10m-rated Real Zaragoza striker Diego Milito and Getafe defender Cata Diaz. Both are members of the Argentine national squad.
