Football: Weekend guide to the Premiership - Sheff Wed v Tottenham Last season: 1-0

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY striker Andy Booth remains manager Danny Wilson's major doubt today. Booth missed last week's 4-1 FA Cup victory over Norwich with an ankle injury, which led to a forward partnership of two-goal Ritchie Humphreys and Benito Carbone. Centre-back Emerson and Dutch international midfielder Wim Jonk should be fit despite both being substituted against Norwich with thigh and knee injuries respectively.

Ruel Fox (knee) is out of the Tottenham team and it could pave the way for a Premiership debut for at least one of manager George Graham's two new signings. Steffen Freund (pounds 750,000 from Borussia Dortmund) and Mauricio Taricco (pounds 1.7m from Ipswich) have both been named in an 18-man squad. Graham's other selection problem is whether to recall striker Chris Armstrong, who missed the 5-2 FA Cup win over Watford through suspension - just six days after scoring a hat-trick against Everton. His replacement, Steffen Iversen, scored twice in the cup tie and it could mean Les Ferdinand being left out.
