Ledley: Massive win

Posted on 6 December 2004  - 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).

Ledley King was happy with the way the team responded to midweek disappointments against Blackburn on Saturday, describing the result as 'massive'.


Robbie Keane's second half goal proved decisive at Ewood Park and the team stood firm as the home side mounted a late rally and banked the three points - making it six in two games in the Barclays Premiership


"It is massive for us," responded the team captain when asked what the result means to the side. "After a disappointing game in the week it was nice to get back on track. It is two league wins on the spin now and we've got to keep going.


"We've been a lot better away from home this season and it was another good defensive display by everyone. We worked very hard and they found it difficult to break us down.


"We needed a goal, Browny did brilliantly with his run and Robbie finished it off well. That was all we needed."


With chances to add to the advantage not taken, Ledley admits that not finishing teams off from a position of strength is a concern to the team - especially after getting pegged back by Liverpool after taking the lead.


"It obviously happened in the week. When you are on top you need to score and sometimes you worry. This season we have struggled to get back into games when the other team has scored so it was important we stayed tight and made sure we kept a clean sheet no matter what.


"It is nice to have a little platform now after losing so many games on the trot, hopefully we have turned a corner now and have something to build on."
