+Jacques back in the box

Posted on 15 March 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).

Pat Holland is delighted with the timely return to fitness of Jacques Maghoma.

The midfielder scored a stunning goal as our Under-18s lost 2-1 at Reading at the weekend in his first action since the FA Youth Cup win against Everton.

He's now back in contention for Thursday's massive FA Youth Cup quarter-final at Watford.

"Jacques was a fixture in central midfield but he had a poor tackle against Birmingham, an ankle problem and then his Achilles flared up against Liverpool," explained coach Pat.

"He's done hardly any training at all but he's a naturally fit boy.

"With that injury Stewart Lewis went into that central position and did well so Jacques now finds himself trying to occupy a wide position.

"In fairness to the boy, he's got good ability and I think he can do a good job for us there even though his favourite position is central midfield.

"In terms of doing the team a job, which happens in cup football, I think we can benefit from him being out there."
