Deano direct

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).

Dean Richards suspects the team might sometimes have to adopt a different approach in their style of play in away matches.

Just three Premiership wins have come on the road this season despite the boys, territorially and possession-wise, enjoying plenty of the play. Dean feels that, perhaps, a more direct manner away from home might pay dividends in future.

"The onus is on us to try and play good football," considered the central defender. "I knew when I came to this club that it is about passing the ball and it is good in most senses.

"Away from home though it is about getting results rather than performance. At home it is different in front of your own fans and you want to play football that is pleasing on the eye.

"Away from home sometimes it is about being a bit more direct and getting a result any way you can."
