'Bents' believes

David Bentley is fully confident of victory over Wisla Krakow on Thursday as long as we believe in ourselves.

It hasn't been the best of starts to our 2008/09 campaign, but the midfielder reckons we must go into every game knowing we have players good enough to beat anyone.

And with the added knowledge of having played a UEFA Cup tie in Krakow for Blackburn Rovers in 2006 - scoring the winning goal on the night - he believes this game should be no different for us.

"It will be difficult but we believe in our ability as well," said David. "Hopefully our heads will be right and we can get the result we need.

"It was a difficult place to go when I was with Blackburn, but enjoyable at the same time, and I'm sure if we're strong enough and have the will to win, we'll do that.

"It will be a great atmosphere and I guess if you can't get up for playing in a game like this, you can't get up for anything."

David scored his first goal for the Club in our 2-1 first leg win against the Poles at The Lane a fortnight ago.

But he believes there is plenty of room for improvement from that night, and is well aware of the test we face.

He added: "Winning the first leg was enjoyable but it was a far from perfect night for me. I enjoyed my goal but not everything was going right.

"I was impressed with the way Wisla played and moved the ball around, but it's just proof that you don't get easy games anymore.

"We know you don't in the Premier League but most European teams seem to be well organised and fit as well nowadays."

COMING THURSDAY - Spurs TV Online speaks to David as he met fans at the Spurs Megastore last week.
