Centre stage for Doc

Posted on 12 January 2004  - 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).

David Pleat admits he thought we'd signed a striker in Gary Doherty - he now knows for sure we've got a defender.

Big Doc's performances have grown and grown in stature this season and he's been outstanding deputising for Dean Richards in our last three games.

He was there again in Saturday's crucial Premiership clash against Leeds as the home side barely troubled us in a 1-0 win.

"We had two young central defenders out there who I thought were excellent," beamed acting boss David afterwards. "Gary Doherty's performance in the first half against Viduka's guile and strength was excellent.

"We've hit it off with Doherty and I'm delighted. We signed him from Luton and I thought he was going to be a centre-forward or we could make him into a centre-forward as opposed to a centre-half - it looks as though we've definitely got a centre-half."
