Pre-match: Bolton

Posted on 31 October 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).

Chris Hughton says we'll have to stay on our defensive mettle to keep Bolton at bay in Saturday's Premiership clash at the Lane.

The Trotters boast the likes of Okocha, Djorkaeff, Jardel, Davies and Pedersen in their ranks but, incredibly, have only scored eight goals in 10 league games so far.

We've only conceded one goal in our last six games but coach Chris is aware Bolton's offensive threat could come alive at any time.

"They have enough quality in the side to score goals and you would look at them as more of an offensive side than defensive," reasoned Chris. "Certainly, on their day, they are capable of scoring goals.

"They've brought in a lot of players over the last couple of years and they are always capable of changing formation, they are very flexible in how they play.

"We're playing at home and we have to look at the advantages of playing at home.

"We know if we get our passing game together we are capable of scoring goals.

"Touch wood, defensively we've done well and we'll have to maintain that on Saturday because they are a good side going forward."
