Edinburgh festival disrupts Spurs' preparations

Tottenham's plans for Thursday night's Europa League play-off with Hearts have been disrupted by the Edinburgh Festival. Additional visitors to the Scottish capital during August means Spurs cannot be accommodated in a suitable hotel, so they are staying 50 miles further north in St Andrews. Harry Redknapp's men will train at their Chigwell base on Wednesday and forego the opportunity to see Tynecastle the evening before tackling Hearts in the play-off first leg. "It's been a problem with our preparation, but we'll get around it,"said Spurs first-team coach Joe Jordan. "We would have preferred to stay in Edinburgh, but we're a long way away from it. We're up at St Andrews."We would have liked to have been closer on the day of the game so our journey there would have been a lot shorter."
