Martin: Nothing to lose

Posted on 4 January 2005  - 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).

Martin Jol doesn't need telling how well Manchester United are playing at the moment - but he insists we go to Old Trafford with confidence tonight.

Our Head Coach's confidence is well founded - six wins in seven unbeaten Barclays Premiership matches have taken us up to seventh and we travel to United on the back of three-successive away wins, conceding just five away goals all season, level best in the division with Chelsea.

United, meanwhile, have won eight of their last nine league games and are unbeaten at Old Trafford all season.

"They are flying," said Martin. "They've won eight in nine and are playing well. They always have the support at Old Trafford and I know it's always tough there but I think we have a good spirit as well, we are playing well and we've done well away from home.

"I 've told the lads that at home, only one team has scored more goals than us, that's Arsenal and away, one team has conceded less goals, and that's Chelsea.

"So we are doing well and we go there with confidence. We have nothing to lose and are looking forward to it."
