Les aware of Sky Blue threat

Posted on 16 January 2002  - 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).

Les Ferdinand is sure that Coventry will be 'up' for Wednesday night's FA Cup encounter at Highfield Road and ready to capitalise on our recent blip.

Les is well aware that any underdogs in the FA Cup third round fancy their chances and that Coventry will be ready with an onslaught under the lights.

"Of course they are," said Les. "They know we've had a bit of a blip and they'll think morale is pretty low in the camp and they'll be looking to take advantage of that."

The in-form Les says morale is good and that to counter the Sky Blues the approach will have to be mentally spot on.

"We've got to make sure that we're mentally right, as well as we can physically be right we will be, but I think it's a situation where we've got to make sure that we're mentally right for this game.

"To be fair the morale has always been very good here. No matter what football club you go to you always hear the players saying the morale is good, because it is normally very good.

"We've been unfortunate in the last couple of weeks, we've picked up some pretty naughty injuries but, like I said, we've got to push on now.

"We've got to get over that barrier of having lost a few games and know that the football we're capable of playing is there and put the finishing touches to that."
