Erik makes his point

Posted on 13 September 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).

Erik Edman admitted there was disappointment in the camp over the failure to secure the three points against Norwich City on Sunday.

Maximum points would have meant third place in the table, but the left-back pointed out that the visitors had chances of their own to snatch the spoils in the closing stages and register a first win of the season.

"Of course everybody is disappointed to take only one point here but, when we were forcing it in the end, they had quite a few opportunities to score," reflected the Swede.

"The first half was good and we played not quite so well in the second half, they created a few half chances and could have scored in the last 15 minutes."

The main cause of the late threat was the speedy Darren Huckerby and Ledley King has to be at his brilliant best to deny the Norwich talisman when he was clean through on goal after rounding Paul Robinson.

"He is tricky boy who likes to dribble and is at his best on the counter. But Ledley is great and was like a rock there.

"I haven't seen anyone in the league who is better defensively."
