Football first

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).

Glenn Hoddle is expecting a football match rather than just a scrap at the Reebok Stadium tonight.

And the boss gives full credit to Sam Allardyce's men for trying to play football as they fight for their lives in the Premiership.

"I think it will be a good football match, even though they are in a relegation battle," said Glenn.

"In the past you'd go there and you'd know it would be a real hard match - it still will be, but for different reasons.

"They've got the likes of Djorkaeff, Okocha, Campo plays in midfield now and they all love to pass the ball.

"It's a passing game and a passing team and we'll be going up there for a football game, even though they are near the bottom.

"Credit to them, they are under a bit of pressure but they are trying to play football. It will be a tough game because they are fighting for every point."
