Chris: I'd take a boring 1-0!

Posted on 8 March 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).

Chris Hughton admits he would happily settle for a boring 1-0 win at Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.

Our last four results have read 3-4, 4-3, 4-2 and 4-4 with pundits drooling over our attacking play but our defending generally criticised.

It was put to Chris that it must be nice to have 'goals in the locker'.

He responded: "It's funny, as a coach you would look at not conceding and being more solid but there is certainly something you can get from the ability to score goals.

"Having said that, a nice 1-0 win, boring as you like, would be very nice at this point."

The lads certainly appear refreshed from our training break in Dubai and Chris added: "The morale of the squad is very good at the moment.

"That's what a break can do for you, it gives an opportunity for those players who are injured or carrying little knocks to heel and to work on fitness levels. We've had good games in training and fitness levels and enthusiasm are very good."
