Gorman: Finish with a bang

Posted on 11 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).

John Gorman insisted that the team are determined to finish the campaign 'with a bang and not a whimper' ahead of the trip to Leeds United on Saturday.

The assistant boss expects a tough examination at Elland Road against a team coming in off the back of a 6-1 win at Charlton, but points out that confidence is high among the players after securing the victory against Birmingham last time out.

"It was nice to come back in with a win and get ready for the build-up to the game against Leeds United," said John at Spurs Lodge on Thursday.

"We know it's going to be a difficult game, they had their first really good win for a while at Charlton, which will obviously put them in good stead as well. We're the same, we are coming off a win and we want a good end to the season.

"We've said it continually and will continue to say it, we want to finish the season off with a bang and not a whimper! We had a bad result at Bolton in the last minute and we need an away result - we'll be going to Leeds to try and win the match.

"Don't underestimate Leeds because of their bad time - look at the players they've got. It's no coincidence they got a good result when they had Kewell, Viduka, Smith, Bakke, Matteo, Harte, Radebe - they are a good side.

"Nobody can turn around and say Leeds are a poor team because they have lost some influential players. A new manager has come in and we know Peter well, he is a great motivator and they will be right up for the game.

"I'm sure we will be the same."
