Perry targets happy Valley

Posted on 7 December 2000  - 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).

Chris Perry believes Saturday represents the best chance yet of breaking our away duck in the Premiership — not that he’s taking bottom-side Bradford City lightly.

Our whole-hearted defender scored on his last visit to Valley Parade last September in a match we dominated only for City to grab an injury time equaliser.

That typified the Bantams never-say-die attitude and although Perry knows we will face another battle against a side fighting for survival, he insists that we should be looking to end a sequence of seven successive away defeats.

He said: “If you look at the game it is possibly our best chance of getting three points away from home.

“With the run we’ve been on at the moment I thought the performance at Manchester United was not too bad and if we can build on that against the bottom side then obviously we can look to go there and try to get three points.

“If we can get an away win the confidence will rise away from home and the more confidence we have, the better. Perhaps we can then start climbing up that table.”

After a disastrous start to the campaign and subsequent sacking of Chris Hutchings, new boss Jim Jefferies seems to have breathed life into City’s survival bid.

The former Hearts chief’s arrival has brought a draw and victory so far and despite still sitting at the foot of the table, Bantams are now level on points with Derby and within striking distance of both Middlesbrough and Coventry.

Perry added: “It’s always tough at Bradford. They are at the bottom of the table and when you go there you can expect a hard battle. They are the type of side who will battle for points. They might not outclass you during a game but they will give 100 per cent and we have to match them for it.”
