Goran on the goal trail

Posted on 10 April 2003  - 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).

Goran Bunjevcevic is convinced his first goal for Spurs is just around the corner.

And our verstile midfielder is even more determined to break his duck now that Mauricio Taricco is giving him some stick about not scoring after bagging his first against Liverpool last month.

Goran is still searching for that first goal after 40 appearances since joining us in 2001.

Having had a shot cleared off the line at Bolton, Goran's latest attempt came against Birmingham City on Saturday when his 25-yard drive was tipped over by keeper Andy Marriott.

"Yes, Tano has given me some stick but I am confident now," said Goran. "I'm used to what is happening around me, I'm getting in some good positions and I'm sure I will score.

"The gaffer and coaches always encourage me to shoot and in training I score lots of goals.

"But matches are different. I think once I get my first goal it will be easier after that."

Goran's frustration is heightened by the fact that he scored 16 goals for his former club Red Star Belgrade.

"I have scored lots of goals in my career but here at Spurs I've had five or six great chances and not scored," he reflected.

"I had one cleared off the line at Bolton and I had a good shot on Saturday that the keeper saved well.

"Playing games has given me confidence and if I get my chance I think I will score."
