Hughton's warning

Posted on 15 January 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).

Chris Hughton has warned that we can't afford a drop in recent standards if we want any reward from Saturday's home clash against Liverpool.

We've won three out of three so far in 2004 and last weekend's 1-0 success at Leeds moved us into 13th in the Premiership having dropped into the bottom three over Christmas.

However, Liverpool have gone five games unbeaten since losing at home to Southampton on December 13 and are now just two points behind Charlton in fifth place, with a game in hand.

"It's the type of game where we know we'll have to play on par with our recent home performances to get something out of it," reasoned Chris.

"The most important thing against what you would regard as the better teams - and Liverpool are certainly right up there - is that you don't want to lose the game.

"A home game should also be an avenue to get some type of result. That's important. But the way we are and the way we've been playing at home, certainly the last few games, we'll go into it confident not only of getting a result but getting a win."
