+Pre-match: Brighton

Posted on 7 January 2005  - 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 is waiting with interest to see how Brighton approach our FA Cup tie tactically on Saturday.

Coach Chris watched the Seagulls beat Watford on New Year's Day where they changed formation three times!

"How they'll go against us, I don't know," said Chris. "I suppose there is every chance they'll line-up 4-4-2 and it will be interesting to see what their mentality is going into the game.

"There are some sides who you know straight away will play a 4-4-2 but Brighton can change. I don't know how they'll go.

"If it's a more cautious approach perhaps they'll play five in midfield but if they think it's the FA Cup and they only way to win it is to go for it, that's another option.

"Will they try to contain us or will they go for it? We'll find that out on the day.

"They won their last game against Watford and a draw at QPR is a good result. They are in good form and no doubt they'll be looking forward to coming to White Hart Lane and as is the case with these FA Cup ties, that alone will give them a lift."
