Let battle commence

Posted on 7 May 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).

Michael Brown expects a right old battle against a friend and former team-mate at the Lane on Saturday.

He will cross swords with Blackburn's Garry Flitcroft for the first time since they were together at Manchester City between 1994-96.

Flitcroft is the captain and driving force in the Rovers midfield - expect sparks to fly.

"I played with Flity at City and he's a good lad," said Michael. "I know him quite well and it will be good to play against him for the first time.

"He drives the side on from midfield, always gives 100 per cent and that's how he plays. That's why he's skipper and it will be a battle with him.

"He loves a tackle, loves to get stuck in so it could be good fun."

Rovers have dug themselves out of relegation trouble in style with four straight wins since a key victory at Fulham over Easter.

Michael added: "They've done well recently having had a rough time of it, were down there as well but they've come back and won games.

"Hopefully they've packed up for holidays but I don't think that will be the case!"
