Carr's magic touch

Posted on 31 October 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).

Stephen Carr raises a smile when it's suggested that the steadying of our defensive ship has anything to do with his stint as stand-in captain.

The popular Irish defender has taken the skipper's armband off injured Jamie Redknapp for the last six games - during which we're unbeaten and have conceded one goal.

"I don't know about any magic touch," he laughs. "I think the lads are working really hard.

"We were going through a really tough time, leaking goals and we've turned it around with a lot of hard graft. Everyone in the team is grafting."

Even better news was that the clean sheets and unbeaten run continued with the 1-0 Carling Cup win against West Ham on Wednesday despite caretaker boss David Pleat making two changes to a back four - Gary Doherty and Christian Ziege coming in - and four changes in total.

Steve added: "It was good to see Christian back, he's been out a while and was unlucky again and Gary Doherty did brilliantly again, just like at Leicester.

"It's good to have defenders coming in and doing a great job. It shows there is a continuity and spirit about the team. It was tough, which you would expect from West Ham, but we looked strong."
