Glenn wary of Foxes' bite

Posted on 5 May 2001  - 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).

Both Glenn Hoddle and Chris Hughton are well aware that bad runs must come to an end — and they are determined that is not the case at Leicester City on Saturday.

Peter Taylor’s men have suffered a record eight-successive Premiership defeats since being knocked out of the FA Cup by Wycombe Wanderers in March.

He is desperate to end that sequence in what is Foxes’ final home outing of the season.

But for their part, both Glenn and Chris want a positive result from our young side to take into our final game — against Manchester United at the Lane on May 19.

Boss Glenn said: “Let’s face it, in football you can have a bad run but it changes at some stage.

“We’re going there with a young, inexperienced side but we have to make sure that we put a good performance and see if we can create chances and then take them.

“We will have to defend away from home and that will be a test for some of our defenders.”

First team coach Chris added: “Whether it’s a good time to go there or not we would possibly say yes, but another way of looking at it is their luck has to change at some stage.

“The fact is there are two games left, we want to finish well and that we’ve a high-profile game is always a plus. It would be nice to face United with a win under our belts.”
