Ledley's positive

Ledley King feels Sunday's trip to Chelsea, always one of the big dates on the Spurs calendar, can help inspire a change of fortunes.

We've kicked off with two defeats in two matches in the Barclays Premier League and now face the daunting trip to Stamford Bridge.

But rather than go to west London with trepidation, skipper Ledley believes our first derby of the campaign will bring out the best of us.

"It's always tough and it's not ideal going there with no points on the board but it might not be the worst match for us," said Ledley. "They've started well but we've nothing to lose.

"We've had some good results against them in the last couple of seasons so maybe we can do the same again - there is no reason why not."

After a well-documented poor run against the Blues, fortunes have changed in the last couple of seasons with a 2-1 win and 4-4 draw at the Lane and, of course, our famous win at Wembley in the Carling Cup Final in February.

"We haven't been beaten by them in our last two meetings so they will be aware of that and that's something we can take into the game as well," added Ledley.

"To go 1-0 down against them in the cup final and still come back to win shows that we have players who can hurt them and the 4-4 draw in March shows we're capable of scoring against them. We have to take that into the game with us and be positive."
