Pre-match: Charlton

Posted on 11 February 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 would love a repeat of last season's win at The Valley - but believes we're up against a stronger Charlton outfit this time around.

Simon Davies struck a fine winner as we toppled The Addicks 1-0 last term before a 2-2 draw at the Lane.

But Charlton got their revenge this time around by beating us 1-0 at the Lane in December and they remain in the hunt Champions League qualification.

Chris pondered: "Last season I would put it down as our best away performance against a very good Charlton side.

"I think they are even better this season, as their league position shows.

"They were in a very good position last season but tailed off towards the end of the campaign.

"They have more experience now and it's no surprise to see them where they are because they've been doing it not just for the last couple of seasons but the last four or five. It's been a gradual progression."
