Glenn wary of Foxes bite

Posted on 10 May 2002  - 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).

Glenn Hoddle insists there is 'too much to play for' in our Premiership finale at Leicester City for it to be a typical end-of-season affair.

The Foxes say goodbye to Filbert Street on Saturday before moving into their new Walkers Stadium next season - where they'll play First Division football after suffering relegation.

Glenn says that emotional goodbye will take Foxes to another level.

"We're going there at a particularly difficult time," said the boss. "It's the last game at their stadium and they will want to go out on a high, no doubt about that.

"This is the very last match at Filbert Street, it's got a lot of history, so there will perhaps be a hint of sadness but also a thought of 'let's go out on a good note', so there will be a spring in their step. It's not an easy time to go there.

"But we'll go there, we're in seventh and we know if we win we'll stay seventh and it's a plain as that for us.

"I think seventh will be a reasonable position for us this season with the way we've played, got to a cup final, quarter-finals of another cup.

"You can see the improvement and it's certainly something to go for for us to improve on next season."

Glenn confirmed earlier in the week that Dean Richards, Ledley King, Christian Ziege and Tim Sherwood will not make it back for the final game but Sergei Rebrov returns after a virus.
