Davis ready for real thing

Posted on 9 August 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).

Sean Davis insisted that little should be read into pre-season reverses following the 2-1 defeat by Cagliari in the penultimate preparation game at the Lane on Saturday.

The midfielder rightly points out that it is games with points at stake that matter and says that all focus is directed towards Saturday's Premiership opener against Liverpool.

He did, however, add that it was a benefit for the new players to have a run out at the Lane ahead of the big day.

"To play in the stadium with the home supporters behind us was a good feeling," reflected Sean. "I was playing a bit out of position, but it was good for me until I had to come off a before the end with a few blisters.

"Someone asked me if I would take losing all the pre-season friendlies and win the game against Liverpool and I said yes.

"The big game is on Saturday, it would have been nice to have won here, but it is not a league game and no-one wins anything. We'll take the good points, look at the bad points and, hopefully, come Saturday after the game we will be top of the league.

"I thought we did well until conceding the two goals in a few minutes. You can't make mistakes at the top level so we will work hard on the training pitch and hopefully things will come together."
