Michael Dawson says the lads take a real pride in their impressive record at White Hart Lane.

The Boxing Day victory against Aston Villa made it 12 successive wins in all competitions – including seven in the Premiership - stretching back to September 28.

Liverpool are next up to test that record on Saturday as we face two potential crackers in as many days against Rafael Benitez’s men and then Portsmouth at Fratton Park on New Years Day.

“Liverpool are a quality team but everyone knows our home record and we’re determined to continue it,” said Michael.

“We did it against Villa, a real scrap and maybe not one of our better performances but sometimes you’ve just got to grind out those results and we did that.

“You look at last season and our home record was fantastic and we wanted that to be the case again this time around. We want to win our home games.

“We all know our away form hasn’t been the same but confidence is high and we’ll be going into the Liverpool game looking for another win.”
