I just want to win - Gomes

Heurelho Gomes takes great pride from equalling the club record of consecutive clean sheets - but insists results are all that really matter.

Saturday's goalless draw against Hull City marked the six-successive clean sheet in league and cups and equalled the record now achieved on six occasions, the last back in 1994-95.

It also represented a record-equalling five-successive clean sheets in the league, a feat also achieved on six occasions, the last in 2000-01.

"It's not just me or just the defence, the whole team has to take credit," said Gomes before training at Spurs Lodge on Tuesday. "We work hard for it.

"We don't look for the record, of course, we just want to keep clean sheets all the time because when you do that, you have more chance to win the games.

"We've had some busy games in the run like Fulham and Blackburn, games when we've had to work really hard for that clean sheet, so we're all proud to equal the record.

"Personally, I don't think about records. I just want to win the games. If the record comes, then that's great, but I just think about the matches. I think we deserve it though because we've all worked so hard."

The team is now 64 minutes away from breaking the club's all-time record of minutes without conceding a goal which stands at 690 from the 1970-71 campaign.

And what a place it would be to do it as we travel to Liverpool for a key match in the Barclays Premier League on Wednesday.

"I've played there many times and I know how hard any game is at Liverpool," added Gomes. "This will be no different. It's a big game and if we manage to win there, it puts more of a gap between us in the table. We will have to work so hard, but confidence is high."
