Boxing clever

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).

Gus Poyet says we have to be more clinical in both penalty boxes to get back to winning ways in the FA Cup tonight.

We face Bolton Wanderers at the Lane in the fourth round following Premiership defeats against Newcastle United and Derby County.

Those games followed a similar pattern - first half dominance without the full reward, disappointment and ultimately defeat in the second half.

That hasn't been lost on Glenn Hoddle or the players.

Gus explained: "Sometimes you finish a game and you've had a lot of possession, a lot of work, you end up losing and it's hard to understand why.

"Basically we are winning the games box to box but losing the games in the box. We have to be more clinical in the two boxes."

Midfielder Gus knows there is no room for mistakes in tonight's tie and that it will be a hard task to beat Sam Allardyce's men for the third time.

"It's one game and there is no time to recover," he said. "Everyone likes to play the FA Cup, we're already in the final of the Worthington Cup and we now want to beat Bolton.

"We're playing for the third time at White Hart Lane this season so it will be difficult to play because we know each other too well.

"I don't know which way they will approach it.

"We know they aren't in too good a position in the Premiership so it's a little difficult with all the games.

"We will try to win it and do well for the fans who I'm sure are disappointed with how the last two games have gone."
