Tottenham midfielder Jenas to miss Arsenal game

April 26, 2006

LONDON, April 21 (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur's England midfielder Jermaine Jenas will miss Saturday's Premier League derby match at Arsenal with a shin injury.

'He took a kick to his shin in training and he won't recover in time. It's too sore,' Spurs manager Martin Jol told the north London club's website on Friday.

Tottenham's Egypt striker Mido is also doubtful and faces a late fitness test on his groin injury on Saturday.

Spurs are already missing captain Ledley King, who is out for the rest of the season, while Arsenal's former Tottenham defender Sol Campbell has not recovered from a broken nose.

Spurs have a four-point lead over Arsenal in the race for fourth spot and a Champions league qualifying place although Arsene Wenger's team have a game in hand.
