Kasey on Leeds challenge

Posted on 11 April 2003  - 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).

Kasey Keller believes that Leeds are out of the woods as far as entering the drop zone is concerned - but does not feel this will diminish their desire for more points.

The Yorkshiremen appeared on the brink of a relegation scrap prior to their 6-1 mauling of Charlton on Saturday, especially given the recent upturn in fortune enjoyed by West Ham and Bolton.

But the win at the Valley lifted Leeds to 14th place - six points clear of third from bottom West Ham. Travelling to face a team on the back of such a positive result will not make for an easy afternoon's work.

"It'll make it interesting," commented Kasey. "It's a good game, they are probably safe but will still want a few more points.

"We want to put wins together now so we'll go up there and give it our best.

"They've got a lot of great players and, as Charlton found out, on their day they can still hammer you quite badly. We know we have to be up there in the right frame of mind as we don't want it to happen to us."

One player who has caught the eye of Kasey this term is young England cap Paul Robinson who, through a difficult time, has displayed form that Kasey feels he should be proud of.

"He's had a good season. Obviously it's been a difficult season for everybody involved at Leeds with the way everything has turned out.

"For himself, I think he's had a real solid season and one that he can obviously be proud of."
