All that matters...

Jamie O'Hara insists the result is all that matters as we aim for a place in the group stages of the UEFA Cup on Thursday.

We travel to Poland to face Wisla Krakow in the second leg of our first round encounter with a 2-1 lead from the first leg at the Lane.

The Polish champions impressed in that first leg and have already taken the notable scalp of Barcelona at the Wisly Stadium in European competition this season - that victory in the second leg of Champions League qualifying with Wisla already 4-0 down from the first leg.

With all that in mind, it's no surprise Jamie and the rest of the squad are giving Wisla their full respect but at the same time, focusing solely on progress.

"It's going to be tough," said the midfielder. "They showed at White Hart Lane that they could play and they were prepared to move the ball around.

"We've got to go out there and get the result. A team ike Spurs has to be in Europe so we'll go out there to make sure we get at least a draw and we'll be looking for the win.

"We're more than capable of getting the right result and if we have to keep it tight, that's what we'll do. If we have to shut up shop, that's what we'll do. It's all about getting through.

"All the games coming up are big games for us and we want to start by getting through to the group stages in Europe."
