Great Scott dreams of Lane

Posted on 5 January 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).

Scott Houghton is dreaming of a return to the Lane. <P class=MsoNormal>The winger made 14 substitute appearances for us, scoring twice, before being released in 1993. <P class=MsoNormal>Houghton, now 29, was Leyton Orient&rsquo&#59;s hero in the second round when he grabbed a late extra time winner against Northwich Victoria. <P class=MsoNormal>He said: &ldquo&#59;It's unfortunate that I've lost contact with people I knew from Spurs because I enjoyed my time there. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;There are one or two faces it will be nice to catch up with - Ian Walker was an apprentice with me and Sol Campbell was a couple of years younger. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Obviously I'd love us to win on the day but from a personal and selfish point of view it would be great if we could get a draw and then win at the Lane because it'd be tremendous for me to go back there.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>The form of the two sides could not be more contrasting, the O's are unbeaten in 15 home games this season, while we have drawn two and lost nine of our 11 away games. <P class=MsoNormal>But Houghton knows that those statistics will be meaningless on the day and he is looking forward to an exciting cup tie at Brisbane Road. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It's a cup tie so form goes out of the window, it's all about who wants to win it more. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;There'll be a capacity crowd and the ground will be rocking so it could be like a 25,000 seater stadium in the Premiership.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<I>Spurs are 16/1 to win the Cup yet again when the year ends in one - click onto <A href="" target=_new>SpursBet </A>for all the details. </I><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <P class=MsoNormal><BR style="mso-special-character: line-break"><BR style="mso-special-character: line-break"><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
