Stephen Clemence is determined to restore some pride against Newcastle United on Tuesday night after what he described as an &lsquo&#59;embarrassing&rsquo&#59; display at Ipswich Town on Saturday.<P class=MsoNormal>The midfielder currently employed in an emergency full-back/wing-back role admitted the 3-0 loss deeply hurt everyone involved.<P class=MsoNormal>Clemence said: &ldquo&#59;There was nothing about us and we know we let a lot of people down. Now we want to put that right.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;m sure there are people out there who think it doesn&rsquo&#59;t hurt us, that we just pick up our wages every week and don&rsquo&#59;t really care but I can assure you it&rsquo&#59;s nothing could be further from the truth.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We were very upset with how we played but we&rsquo&#59;ve now got the opportunity to try and put it right. This game is very important.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Our unbeaten home record is still intact going into Tuesday&rsquo&#59;s encounter and Clemence added: &ldquo&#59;At home we feel like we can beat anyone and that&rsquo&#59;s why our away form is so strange.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Newcastle are in a bit of form. They have some very talented players and a great manager but we&rsquo&#59;d all like to believe we can keep our home form going.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal><I>Stephen Clemence is 16/1&nbsp&#59;to open the scoring tonight - click onto <A href="" target=_new>SpursBet</A> for all the details.</I> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
