Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Schoolboy Jamie Davis gets his chance in tonight's FA Youth Cup tie against Nottingham Forest at the Lane.

Phil Ifil and Jamie O'Hara join the youngster in the line-up and coach Pat Holland reports no injury worries before the third round encounter.

"We're all okay," said Pat. "The only one missing is Nathan Peprah with his knee injury, which is a shame for the lad.

"I've made one or two changes, brought Jamie Davis in and that's quite an important one, bringing a schoolboy in at this stage but he's done very well for Jimmy Neighbour in the Under-16s.

"He's never really had enough opportunity in the time he's been on for us this season but he's showed good flashes and was very, very good in a practice match we had last Saturday.

"I just think we needed that type of player wide right because he does get by his man, crosses the ball and I'm looking forward to seeing him play.

"You feel for the lads who haven't made the team like Scott Thyer and especially Stuart Lewis because he's played most games this season.

"That's something that happens in football and he has to show the determination to accept the decision and then prove himself again, it's all part of your upbringing and education in football. We want to see that bit of fighting spirit.

"We've a bit of experience in there with Jamie O'Hara and Phil Ifil and Phil will captain the side. The lads are looking forward to it.

Squad: Forecast, Ifil, Wright, Maghoma, Mills, Lee, Davis, Dawkins, Barcham, O'Hara, Daniels. Subs: Lewis, Button, Riley, Thyer, Martin.
