CRAZY DAYS

Gus Poyet does not expect another 'crazy' game against Reading - but would take another 6-4 if it meant a Spurs win!

Our first team coach is, of course, referring to that memorable afternoon at the Lane back in December when we trailed three times in the second half before running out 6-4 winners against the Royals in the Barclays Premier League.

Dimitar Berbatov bagged four goals as the scoring went 1-0, 1-1, 1-2, 2-2, 2-3, 3-3, 3-4, 4-4, 5-4 and finally 6-4 in our favour with the final six goals coming in a 20-minute spell.

As Gus admitted, it's not often in his career when he's thought to himself 'I didn't feel safe until the sixth went in'...

"I remember standing on the touchline thinking 'what is going on?', it was crazy," smiled Gus as he recalled the match. "Every time we did something, they came back. Goals were going in, Berba was scoring for fun, just crazy.

"This is a different game. If you look at the table, Reading need to win and they can't rely on other results so maybe it will be a little more open than our last few games.

"Our matches against Reading have had goals and chances but I hope it's not another crazy 6-4!"

It was suggested to Gus that he might take that 6-4 if we were the victors. "Okay, yes, we would, but I don't think that will happen again!" he said.

"We have to expect them to come out hard, to look to go forward and it's up to us to produce our quality. We just want to go there and perform.

"We've started our last few games well, we've been in control, we've been in front and we want to get the ball down and play."
