Away-day concern

Posted on 4 May 2004  - 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).

Michael Brown admits that the narrow defeats on the road are becoming difficult to take.

Another 1-0 reverse came at Aston Villa on Sunday with a 5th minute goal from Juan Pablo Angel settling the encounter. The team have now taken nothing on their travels since the thrilling win at Charlton in February and the midfielder concedes it is a cause of great concern.

"Yes they are getting hard to take and we are trying to find a solution for why we can't win away from home," he reflected after the game at Villa Park.

"We are very disappointed and I think Charlton was our last one. We are very aware of it and it has been very disappointing for us.

"It is these early goals that do for us - we are always trying to climb back into games. Apart from that they had five minutes at the start of the second half where they could have put us away, but didn't.

"We came back again, kept pushing and had some good play towards the end of it, but we still couldn't get the goal."

With the season now settled at the top and bottom of the table, Michael is hoping that a positive result can be achieved against Blackburn in the final home game on Saturday and away at Wolves before attention is focused on next season.

"The lads are desperate to win the home game next week then we can start to look forward to next season."
