Bale set to play against Milan

Spurs winger Gareth Bale is set to return to the Tottenham strating line-up in time for the Champions League 2nd leg match against AC Milan, according to the official Premier League website.

Bale, who scored a hatttick last time he faced Milanese opposition, missed out on Tottenham’s historic 1-1 away win at San Siro on Tuesday, out with a back injury. But Spurs manager Harry Redknapp feels that the Wales international should return in time for the 9th March return leg at White Hart Lane, saying “Hopefully we’ll have Bale back, and him and Lennon have got such pace.”

Lennon was instrumental in the first leg deciding goal, running from the half-way line to set up Peter Crouch for the winner. If Bale does return to the starting line-up, he would likely replace Steven Pienaar on the left-wing.
