Pochettino confirms double injury boost for Dortmund game

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has dropped a double injury boost ahead of the Champions League clash against Borussia Dormund on Tuesday.

In a report covered on the club's official website, Pochettino confirmed both Harry Winks and Eric Dier have linked up with the travelling squad but their involvement may be determined by a late fitness test.

He added that the duo are unlikely to feature from the starting lineup and they could at best make the bench, given they have spent a reasonable amount of time off the playing field.

Winks missed the recent north London derby against Arsenal with a hip problem. Dier, meanwhile, has been sidelined for the past five games after being laid low with Tonsillitis.

Spurs are currently holding a comfortable 3-0 advantage from the home leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie against Dortmund and they remain favourites to reach the quarter final stage barring a sensational comeback from the German side.
