"There's a sickness bug around the training ground so there are a few players who have not been able to make training," he said.

"We have a couple of players, I don't want to tell you who who they are but they're not here today because they are ill.

"They are not well today and the doc is having to do some overtime. We could miss a couple and there's a couple who are not well now. I'd rather they weren't well now rather than tomorrow.

"There must be a bug going around, we're just hoping it's made its way to the north-east."

:I'm looking forward to going there and performing for the Spurs fans as soon as possible.

The support I get from the fans motivates me more and more.

I'm a player who really loves football. I learned the game under my father who was a football coach in my school.

I've trained with both feet so I can use them freely. Bold and daring - this is how I like to try to play.
