Jermain: Confidence high

Posted on 21 January 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).

Jermain Defoe reports that confidence is high as the team prepare to try and get back on the winning trail against Crystal Palace on Saturday.


The brilliant striker is not dwelling on the fact that Chelsea ended an eight-game unbeaten streak last time out and reasons that, as long as the boys continue to perform well, positive results will continue to be gathered between now and the end of the season.


"We don't really talk about unbeaten records, as long as you are playing well and moving up the table that is all that matters really," considered Jermain. "From now to the end of the season we will try and win as many games as we can.


"We will move up the table and take each game as it comes. Palace is the next game and I think we can get the points.


"When you are winning games everyone is confident and we have been winning games. I've been scoring goals, so has Robbie and Fredi when he has been playing, while the midfield and defence are doing well.


"When you have a confidence in your side, when you play you feel you will get points all the time. The team spirit is good and I think we'll push on from here.


"I was disappointed about the Chelsea game, but I think we'll kick on from here."


It's Palace next at Selhurst Park and Jermain suspects the boys will have to be patient in order to impose authority on the game.


"No game is easy, Crystal Palace make it difficult for you because they work so hard and have so much energy and, if anything, haven't got the results they deserve.


"We need to be patient, pass the ball and, in the end, hope our quality will come through.


"They play the five in midfield, work so hard for each other, have a good team spirit and are fighting to stay in the division. It will be hard for us and, like I said, we need to be patient.


"Sometimes it makes it easier that we played them only a few weeks ago because you remember some of the things they are good at or not so good at. We'll watch a video to make sure and highlight any errors we need to eliminate.


"We are playing well, I thought we played okay against Chelsea and were unlucky with the penalty decision. Without the penalty, you never know, it could have been a different outcome."
