Balance the key

Posted on 5 November 2003  - 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).

Kasey Keller says the key to moving back into European contention is finding the right balance between defence and attack.

We have certainly steadied the defensive ship in David Pleat's caretaker spell so far with just two goals conceded in seven games.

However, the goals have dried up of late - one in three games at the Lane last week - and a 1-0 defeat against Bolton on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Kasey said: "We are definitely more resolute but the key now is the balance between the two, creating and scoring but still keeping it tight at the back.

"That is the question. Can we do that consistently? When you do, you find yourselves up in the European spots."
