Feet on the ground

Alan Hutton admits he is as delighted as our fans at the moment with the way things are going.

A dramatic North London derby win at the Emirates last Saturday followed by qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League has made this a week to remember so far at the Lane.

But the full-back has urged caution with another massive Premier League game with Liverpool next up on Sunday.

Although Alan is relishing the big games coming thick and fast, he also knows we cannot afford to get ahead of ourselves at any time.

The Scotland international said: "It's brilliant to be a player and a fan of the Club at the moment. Things are going in the right direction and we're on the up and up, so we're all happy.

"We've got a young team full of pace and energy and we all seem to be clicking at the moment. It's a great feeling and a great team to be part of.

"We've got some really big games coming up, but if we want to do well and progress as a team, these are the games we have to go out and win. We're looking forward to Sunday.

"But the minute you get too carried away, that will be your downfall, so it is about keeping your feet on the ground and to keep progressing as each game comes."

Alan has been part of a back line that has started the last eight games in all competitions, and a sure sign they are becoming a more settled unit was the clean sheet kept against Werder Bremen during the week.

He added: "Everybody wants clean sheets. We hadn't had one in a while so hopefully we can get more in the games ahead."
