Hughton's notes

Posted on 19 February 2005  - 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).

Chris Hughton offers his regular assessment of our forthcoming opponents - next up, Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Sunday...


FOREST'S system depending on how adventurous they are will be three at the back and five in midfield with Taylor and King up front, two lads who can certainly rise to the big occasion.


The new manager has brought in players like Curtis and Melville who have more experience, Rogers at left-back has as well. It all depends how they approach the game but they are certainly capable of getting midfield players forward to support the front two.


Taylor and King can be a handful. I've seen quite a bit of both players, King when he was at Gillingham and the big threat with him is pace. He's certainly one who could rise to the occasion. I'm reluctant to say he has a point to prove but I'm sure he will want to do well on the bigger stage.


Taylor's been around for a while, seen him play numerous times and he's always a threat with balls going into the front with either King or midfielders running off him.


Gary Megson will be aware that it's about confidence and if you win one game, you'll go into the next game more confident and from their point of view, if they were to get any kind of result against us, he'll look to take it into their league campaign.
