Hughton's scouting report

Posted on 25 August 2004  - 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).

Coach Chris Hughton took a close look at West Brom on Sunday and gives us a brief rundown of what we can expect tonight...

"I was there against Villa on Sunday and West Brom are good, hard-working side, a physical side but have quality in the team, no doubts about it," Chris reported.

"They still play very much a 4-4-2 system with Kanu playing off the front. Most teams seem to employ that system these days, a player who will play a little deeper and Kanu certainly gives them something else. He gets the crowd going and will be a big favourite there.

"Perhaps their style is a little more direct than others but they play to their strengths. They are a high-tempo side and they like to play the game like that but they have good quality in the side and no-one should be fooled because they've just come up that they don't have that quality.

"In the game against Villa they were unfortunate not to win and on the balance of the game should have won.

"I feel that certainly after their previous experience of the Premiership, having gone down and now back up again, they will be a better side for it.

"They've brought in three or four players, bought well and they will be very difficult opposition."
