Case from the defence

Posted on 12 April 2005  - 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).

Leigh Mills and Charlie Lee are convinced we can turn around a 2-0 semi-final first leg deficit against Ipswich Town and progress to the final of the FA Youth Cup on Wednesday night.


It's make or break time in the second leg at the Lane after the Suffolk outfit got their noses in front at Portman Road.


The central defensive pair have been two of the heroes of our run to the last four of youth football's top tournament.


But now they need their best yet. "We're at the stage where we're nearly there, we've done well to get this far but we've not achieved anything yet," said England Under-17 international Leigh (left).


"The first leg didn't go as planned but there are still positives to take out of it and it's not a deficit we can't overturn.


"We're all up for it and hopefully we'll be able to do it. They are definitely beatable. On the night their team shape got to us a little bit but we're prepared for it this time."


Charlie (top right) conceded Ipswich were the better team last Friday. "It was more a bad performance from us on the night though." he insisted.


"I believe if we can repeat the performances from the earlier rounds we can progress.


"It's very tough. They were clever and made us play their game rather than our normal game. This time we've got to be clever and play our own game.


"All season we've looked forward to this competition and as a player you never really think about the final. Now it's right in front of us. We've got a chance and I just hope we can do it."
