Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is at odds with Andre Villas-Boas over his role in the side and has held a second round of crisis talks with the Spurs manager.
The Togolese striker has not started a single game in any competition this season and made his frustration known to Villas-Boas last month, before re-iterating his desire to play more following last weekend's dreadful home defeat to Wigan.
Adebayor is now likely to make his first start of the campaign in Thursday's Europa League clash against Maribor.
The former Arsenal man has, however, made it clear he is unhappy having anticipated being Tottenham's first-choice striker when he completed a permanent £5 million move to the club in the summer, only to find himself out of the side with Jermain Defoe preferred in his place.
Villas-Boas explained privately that the 28-year-old was left out in the early part of the season due to concerns about his fitness - plus hamstring and back injuries - and failed to break into the side because of Defoe's impressive form.
