Keeping it clean

Posted on 26 September 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).

Anthony Gardner was delighted to keep it clean at Coventry City in the Carling Cup on Wednesday night.

The big defender had tunnel vision at Highfield Road - it was all about keeping a zero in the goals against column.

He achieved his aim as goals from Robbie Keane, Fredi Kanoute and Rohan Ricketts won the second round tie 3-0.

"Keeping a clean sheet was very important," said Anthony. "We spoke about it before the game and that was our only thought - myself, Carry, Deano, Kasey and Tano, to get a clean sheet.

"We decided we hadn't done enough recently, let in a few goals and it had to come to a stop.

"It's very nice to have kept a clean sheet. When it reads 'opposition nil' on the scoreboard, we've done our jobs as defenders. You won't lose a game and at the least you'll get a draw. That's what we're looking at from now on.

"The win was important for morale more than anything, confidence. We've had a bad time recently, three defeats on the spin and it was all about getting a win."
