The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Andre Villas Boas, has decided to rest some of the regular first team players for the Capital One Cup match against Carlisle United which is going to be played on Wednesday, according to the Tottenham news website.

Due to this, many of the second choice players of Tottenham will get the opportunity to play in that match and the English midfielder Tom Huddlestone is one of them.

Huddlestone hasn’t been included in the first XI of Tottenham even once in the ongoing season. But, the English midfielder is expected to be given his first starting chance in Wednesday’s match.

The last season hadn’t gone well for Huddlestone at all. He got injured in the earlier part of the season and he had to miss the rest of the season. He managed to feature only four times for the Spurs in the last season.

Huddlestone regained 100% fitness at the start of the current season and he made his comeback by playing in the pre season friendly match against Stevenage.

He played his first match of the 2012-13 season against Norwich City. He had substituted Jermain Defoe in the 81st minute of that match.

Huddlestone hasn’t been able to grab the limited opportunities that he has got in the ongoing season so far. But, the Wednesday’s match against Carlisle is going to be a big match for him. He will have to prove that he deserves to be included in the starting line up more often than not.

When asked about Wednesday’s match, Huddlestone said, “If I get included in the first XI for Wednesday’s match, it will be a big opportunity for me. I haven’t got enough opportunities to play in the recent times and I desperately want to spend some time out there in the middle.

“If I get the starting opportunity against Carlisle, I will try to make the most out of that opportunity.”
