Armstrong keen to seal place

Posted on 5 December 2000  - 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).

Chris Armstrong has waited a long time &mdash&#59; now he intends to stay in the Premiership limelight.<P class=MsoNormal>Armstrong was finally handed his first start of the season at Manchester United on Saturday when Sergei Rebrov was withdrawn with a thigh problem.<P class=MsoNormal>Ruled out until the start of November with groin trouble, Armstrong has been regaining fitness in the reserves for the last month or so before the daunting test at Old Trafford.<P class=MsoNormal>Now he&rsquo&#59;s back, he wants to get back on the goal trail that produced nine goals in his last 13 Premiership matches last season and another in his first substitute appearance against Sunderland this time around.<P class=MsoNormal>He admitted: &ldquo&#59;You&rsquo&#59;ve got to take your chance when you get it, especially with another three quality strikers here. When Sergei&rsquo&#59;s back we&rsquo&#59;ll have to see what the manager says. I&rsquo&#59;ll just try and get a couple more games in and see what happens.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Chances were few and far between at Old Trafford but Armstrong was just pleased to complete 75 minutes before being replaced by Willem Korsten.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It was always going to be hard for me,&rdquo&#59; he added. &ldquo&#59;I was pleased to come through with no more problems. It would have been nice to have got on the scoresheet and to have got some points but I can take positives as well, I&rsquo&#59;ve come through another game and that&rsquo&#59;s good news.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s always hard up there but I thought we coped quite well and were pretty unlucky to concede a late goal to make it 2-0.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We can take a lot of positive things from the performance though. We caused them a few problems and made it difficult at times. They are the champions and I thought we did a decent job up there.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Listen to Chris' views by clicking <A href="">here</A><P class=MsoNormal><I>By Paul Miles</I><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
