Photos: Spurs given boost as two players return to training ahead of Dortmund

Tottenham Hotspur have two players back in training ahead of the showdown against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

The likes of Eric Dier and Eric Lamela have recently been sidelined due to an illness and a back injury respectively.

At a time when the team is already missing key players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli, the absence of any more players is bound to be felt by Tottenham.

But prior to the clash with Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, Dier and Lamela have made their return to training.

Neither of the duo may be included in the squad for the Dortmund game but it is still a considerable boost to have them back on the pitch.

With so many games on the calendar for the next month, it is imperative to have a squad which is not too thin as the club pursues another season of Champions League football.
