All's well with Clem

Posted on 1 March 2002  - 12:00

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).

Stephen Clemence reports that he felt no reaction to his hour-long reserve run-out on Tuesday.

Clem played for an hour at West Ham in his first game since suffering a groin injury back in November and is looking forward to another game next week.

"I felt okay on Wednesday," said Clem. "I was more tired waking up on Thursday - it seems to hit you two days later.

"The groin feels okay, I feel fine so I'm going to look forward to the game on Monday. We've got Leicester in the reserves, so I'll hopefully try and get more than 60 minutes and get step closer."

The visit of Sunderland is one that Clem will be sorry to miss out on - they are one of the three teams he's ever scored a senior goal against!

"Don't take the mick," laughed the midfielder. "Sundlerland last year away was a memorable game for me, we beat them 3-2.

"They are not having as good a season as they have in the last couple, but it will still be a tough game for the boys, but one we must win to get back on track in the league.

"We've got to try and sneak into the back door for a place in Europe through the league now, that's what we will be looking for."

Playing Sunderland has been a profitable experience for Spurs in recent years, having lost just once to them since the advent of the Premiership.

"It just seems to happen like that with certain clubs - look at ourselves with Chelsea. All of a sudden the duck gets broken. Hopefully it doesn't on Saturday and we can keep on winning.

"These sort of records seems to happen, whether you always score against them or always beat them. Football is strange and I don't know why it happens, I couldn't put my finger on it."
