Bobby's goal

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).

Bobby Zamora has reiterated that the wait for his first goal is not affecting him adversely.

The 21-year-old received a boost from caretaker boss David Pleat when he got the nod to partner Robbie Keane in place of injured Fredi Kanoute against Middlesbrough on Sunday.

But chances were few and far between for the 21-year-old still looking for his first senior goal since his summer switch from Brighton.

Bubbly as ever at Spurs Lodge, Bobby said: "My job is to link up with players and keep the ball, get it wide and get into the box.

"That's what I've been doing and all that is missing is a goal. I've said a few times already it's not bothering me because I know at some stage it will come.

"This year for me is purely a learning curve and to start any game is a bonus. I know a goal will come eventually. I think my game has improved, I'll learn, pick up things and kick on further next season."

Reflecting on Sunday's goalless draw, he added: "It was nice to get the nod to start.

"We played well in the first half and a little into the second half but the gaffer had to change things to try and combat them coming forward and I had to come off.

"They were a tough side. Gareth Southgate is full of experience and he was a good player to play against. It's a game I can learn from."
