Tim may start on bench.

Tottenham's new midfielder Tim Sherwood is in line to make his debut at home to Coventry, although he might have to start on the substitutes' bench after an impressive Spurs FA Cup replay victory in midweek against Wimbledon.

Andy Sinton, whose early opener was his first for two years, is likely to keep his place on the left, although French star David Ginola is back in training after a hamstring injury.

Manager George Graham said: ``David has done some good work with our rehab man, and the best thing is that he hates being injured. Unlike some people, he doesn't want to be lying on the treatment table until late in the afternoon.''

Les Ferdinand looks certain to be retained in attack after one of his most impressive displays in midweek. He said: ``I'm feeling fit and close to what I want to achieve.''

Tottenham are deadlocked in negotiations with Paris St Germain for centre-back Alain Goma who is valued at around [pound]3.5 million by the French club.
