Darren: Smith the dangerman

Posted on 11 April 2003  - 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).

Darren Anderton points to Leeds striker Alan Smith as a principal threat ahead of our trip to Elland Road on Saturday.

The England international has been a shining light throughout a difficult campaign for Leeds with his robust, all-action style of play and Darren suspects he will be one to keep an eye on at the weekend.

"I think Alan Smith is one of their better players and when he plays well he is a real handful," said the midfielder.

"With Harry Kewell in there as well they are a very creative team and have players who can win the game on their own. It's going to be a tough one.

"We need to get some results though, we needed Saturday and hopefully that will push us on to more wins."

Leeds enjoyed a massive 6-1 triumph at Charlton on Saturday to ease the pressure that was building as they edged towards the danger zone and Darren admits that their struggles this season have been a surprise to him.

"It is really, they've got good players and it hasn't really worked for them this year. They've still got good players and, if they turn it on, are a match for anyone."

While Leeds were boosted by victory at the Valley, Darren added that our own win over Birmingham at the Lane provided a welcome tonic.

"We needed the win - no doubt about that. The circumstances with getting the late goal after conceding late at Bolton - it is nice to have it our way this time.

"Saturday was all about the result and we needed the three points. It was a bit of a relief."
