Fourth is the goal, both top and bottom

One side's ambition of being in a 'fourth place' position will be benefitted at the conclusion of this encounter.

Tottenham are still frantically trying to cling onto a top four position while Bolton want to finish in a bottom four position and thus help their chances of survival.

This fixture will also attract the attentions of West London sides QPR and Chelsea who will be both hoping for different results.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, for the first time since February, will be 100% focused on his club side as England have since snubbed him and with their win over Blackburn at the weekend they will be a more galvanised side.

The hosts are 16/5 and it has been their home form which has really let them down this season. Also, they have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 10 Premier League games against Tottenham.

Tottenham (5/6) are still in with a chance of catching Arsenal, a win would put them one point behind the Gunners and with Chelsea potentially nullifying the Champions League place that goes to the finishers in fourth then third is somewhere they want to be.

Bolton skipper Kevin Davies scored twice at Sunderland last time out and one of them was a header, can he score with his head against Tottenham? We've enhanced the price from 6/1 to 8/1 for our Match Winner offer!

A worry for Spurs is that they have failed to score in their last four Premier League away games, however they have never failed to score in five consecutive Premier League away games. The last time Tottenham failed to score in 5+ consecutive league away games was in 1982-83 when they set a club record of eight road games without a goal, despite finishing fourth at the end of the season. However if they replicated this they would certainly not finish fourth.

Kyle Walker scored a screamer last week and he is 33/1 to open the scoring against the Trotters. The wing back could do his old club QPR a massive favour if he were to put one or two past Bolton.

I expect Bolton to come out and go for the win, but Spurs are masters of the counter attack and I would be backing a double result of Tottenham/Tottenham at 9/5. I also think that at 21/10 Spurs minus one goal on the handicap market looks to be a good price.
