Iversen's target

Posted on 1 March 2001  - 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).

Steffen Iversen hopes to be fully fit for our FA Cup quarter-final at West Ham.

The Norwegian striker made his Premiership return as substitute against Leeds United on Saturday after four months out with knee trouble.

He admits he wasn't quite 100 per cent ready - but that was more down to suffering from a virus the week before the Leeds encounter rather than the knee that needed operations in November and January.

He said: "It is always good to come back. The knee was a bit stiff after the game but it felt okay, everything is fine and the knee is good.

"My cold was still there on Saturday. I had an infection the week before and to be honest the cold was more of a problem than the knee. I could feel it straight away.

"It will be nice to now have a full week of training and be ready for the next game but it will still be a couple of weeks before the full fitness comes back.

"I should definitely be 100 per cent fit for the FA Cup quarter-final. I'll just try to get as fit as I can and try to be ready for the next game."
