MIDO READY FOR DERBY DATE

Posted on 31 October 2005  - 12:00

Mido insisted that personal goalscoring ambitions will matter little on Saturday as long as the team records a derby victory at the Lane.

Mido insisted that personal goalscoring ambitions will matter little on Saturday as long as the team records a derby victory at the Lane.

The striker knows that should one of our players net a winning goal against our nearest rivals, a permanent place in the affections of supporters would be instantly afforded.

Mido doesn't mind who it is - as long as it happens.

"To be honest, I am just looking to win the game as that would be a big thing for us - it doesn't matter if I score or not.

I know if a player scores a winner against Arsenal it is a big step for him here at Tottenham

"I know it is a very big game and that everyone here is looking forward to it. I hope we can win because we are confident and we have had good results over the last few weeks.

"I have also heard it is a great atmosphere for the game at White Hart Lane, added Mido, who featured as a substitute in last season's meeting at Highbury.

"Arsenal are still a good team with many attacking options. If they make any mistakes at the back we must make the most of it and, if we get chances, we must score."
