+Pre-match: Bolton

Posted on 20 October 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).

Chris Hughton has underlined the importance of home rule as we try to get back on track against Bolton on Saturday.

Sam Allardyce's men arrive at the Lane sitting pretty in fourth while we try to bounce back from losing our unbeaten away record in the Premiership with only our second defeat in nine this season at Portsmouth on Monday night.

Coach Chris, who watched Bolton beat Palace on Saturday, insists we need to do the business at the Lane as we try to progress this season.

"It's important that we try to bounce back and even more important because it's a home game," he explained.

"Any side that wants to do well and wants to achieve something has to do well at home.

"The fact that we're coming off the back of our first away defeat, there is no better opportunity to bounce back.

"But we're up against a Bolton side that has really cemented themselves into the Premiership over the past few years.

"I saw them against Palace and although it wasn't one of their better performances they still had enough."
