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).

Charlton boss Alan Curbishley admitted he was pleased to be leading at half-time before his side won last night's Valley clash 2-0.

Jerome Thomas gave the Addicks a dream start with a thunderbolt in the fourth minute but we had the best of the rest of the half and came closest in a disappointing second half before Danny Murphy curled home a free-kick to seal it five minutes from time.

Curbishley said: "We got a great start with a fantastic strike from Jerome but I think Spurs played well in the first half and I was so pleased to get into half-time leading and we sorted a few things out, then got stronger as the game went on.

"Spurs had two or three decent chances, and they didn't take them. Sometimes games hinge on that. They looked a good outfit, especially in the first half, and I am so pleased we beat them.

"I am obviously delighted with the result and for the two boys who scored two fabulous goals.

"It was a big result. But it was a big game because it was Spurs - it wasn't about league positions, because there is a long way to go."
