*Palace Trivial Pursuit

Posted on 2 January 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).

A spot of trivia ahead of our FA Cup quest that begins on Saturday against Crystal Palace at the Lane - Who was the last Spurs player to score against Palace?

Fans who keep an eye out for the progress of our younger players out on loan will know that the deed was accomplished at the end of November by Johnnie Jackson who was, at the time, on loan at Coventry and scored a last-minute leveller for the Sky Blues to secure a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park.

Now back in the Spurs fold and with two Premiership appearances under his belt, Johnnie hopes to mark a likely FA Cup debut for the club with another goal to ground the Eagles.

"I scored against them on loan for Coventry so it would be nice to do it again," said Johnnie, who has impressed down our left flank in the last two games. "They are going to be well up for it, but we have got the quality here. We need to win and doing so would do a lot for our confidence."

The 21-year-old admitted that the dressing room mood was 'sombre' in the dressing room after Sunday's defeat to Charlton, but he is convinced that brighter times are not too far ahead.

"It hasn't been good for us over Christmas and it was a bit sombre in the dressing room, to be honest. We've just got to fight it out, every player in there believes we can get better results. It is just about applying it on the pitch," he added, before explaining that his spell at Coventry has greatly helped him in his short top-flight career so far.

"It is completely different to anything I have played before. The loan spell at Coventry has really helped me - if I had gone in from the reserves it could have been a bit of a shock.

"Reserve football is a completely different world and this is so much faster and you've got the crowd. The loan worked for me in helping me take the step up, although I am struggling towards the end of the games. My legs have been going, but that is something that will come if I get a run in the team."
