Pre-match: Arsenal

Posted on 23 April 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).

David Pleat says the team will be very positive in their approach to the Arsenal encounter on Sunday.

The Highbury outfit are on course for the Premiership title and have remained unbeaten throughout the League campaign as they have swept all before them.

"We're very positive, I'm sure the supporters will be right behind and want us to win it," considered David. "We're not going out for a draw.

"We do take heart from our performance at Highbury, where they scored a controversial goal, but it was from one of those clever runs where they peeled away."

The acting boss acknowledges that there is a gap between the top three and the rest at present, but insists there is a bright future ahead for our club with the young players emerging.

"There is a gap between third and fourth place in this league and there is a gap between Arsenal and Tottenham. We are all realists, everyone knows the state of their club at any one time.

"I think we have some very good young players here. They have all made their mark this season in a way and, to establish young players in the Premiership, is something we can base our hopes on. But it takes time and takes patience.

"You want the catalyst to take it forward, but there are very good foundations."
