Perfect week

Posted on 29 August 2003  - 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).

Dean Richards is determined to make it the perfect Premiership week by beating Fulham at the Lane tomorrow.

Having toppled Leeds last weekend, the lads picked up a much-deserved draw against Liverpool - our first point at Anfield since 1996 - on Wednesday and Dean is now targeting maximum points against the Cottagers.

"It would be a great week for us if we could top it off with three points," said the big defeder at Spurs Lodge.

"Fulham haven't had a game in midweek so they will feel a little fresher but if we play the way we played last Saturday there is no reason why can't take the three points.

"They have good individual players all around the pitch and you have to be careful with the likes of Malbranque, Boa Morte, Saha - all players who can create or score goals out of nothing.

"But if we impose our game early then we can go on and win the game."

Meanwhile, Deano is pleased with his fitness having been plunged back into Premiership action after an Achilles problem sidelined him throughout pre-season.

He added: "I'm still lacking that bt of sharpness and that's something I've got to work on. We've Fulham and then we've a bit of a break, so I'll be able to get training in there.

"Sometimes I feel a bit short in certain instances but overall I'm very pleased. My Achilles is feeling good and that's the main thing."
