Keep it clean!

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).

Simon Davies says that keeping a clean sheet is priority number one against Fulham on Sunday.

Defensive lapses have overshadowed displays in recent weeks and Simon is fully aware at least a point is required to go some way towards restoring confidence.

"It's a massive game for us," said Simon. "We've got to get a draw at worst, keep a clean sheet at least.

"We got to go there, it's a big game and we've got to do it."

The midfielder has fond memories of previous encounters with Fulham this season, having scored our Worthington Cup winner at Craven Cottage and adding another at the Lane in the Premiership.

"I've scored two against them this season and I'll be looking to score and get another, as I'm sure everyone will.

"We've got to go there with a positive head on, maybe a bit more of a defensive head on and make sure we don't concede a sloppy goal."

Simon reflects that had chances been converted we would not be seeking a way out of a losing streak.

"We are going to create chances, as we did against Charlton. If we'd put our chances away there we'd have come out 3-1 winners. It's just the way it's gone at the minute and we're struggling."
