Kasey pays the penalty

Posted on 26 March 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).

Losing to a last-gasp penalty against Bolton spoiled a fine night's work by Kasey Keller.

The USA international - who signed a contract extension at the weekend - did not look like he was going to be beaten and agreed that the home side's penalty winner was a sickening blow.

"That just about sums it up," he said. "Losing with the last kick of the game is not going to make anyone happy, that's for sure.

"Especially now, going into an international break - letting that sit for a couple of weeks. That's tough, we know we're not doing ourselves any favours.

"We've put ourselves in a good position to get into Europe all season and now we're going on a bad run at the wrong time.

"We've got seven games to put it right and we still can do it - no doubt about it. It starts on the next game and we're running out of time.

"There are no complaints, it was a penalty. It's just a shame having battled as hard as we did. We knew we were under pressure, we didn't play particularly well in the second half, but were managing to hold them off.

"It would have been a good away point and it is a shame that that happened at the end. It would have been a good boost to have kept a clean sheet away from home."
