+Pre-match: Fulham

Posted on 24 February 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).

Simon Davies hopes to rekindle happy days against Fulham when we face them in the Barclays Premiership this weekend.

The Cottagers travel to the Lane on Saturday as we return to league action after a couple of weeks of FA Cup action.

We go into the game sitting ninth in the table and looking for a win to maintain our hopes of getting up to sixth place.

But that means turning around our recent form against Chris Coleman's side - not least the 2-0 defeat at Craven Cottage back in October, quite possibly our worst display this season.

Simon enjoyed his early matches against Fulham - scoring in two of three wins in his breakthrough 2001-02 season.

Since then, we've failed to win in five league matches against Fulham with the West Londoners winning four.

The Welsh star reflected: "When I first started playing against Fulham I scored a couple of goals against them and I used to look forward to playing them but they seem to be out bogey team at the moment.

"Certainly, the game down at Craven Cottage this season was one to forget.

"They are a well-organised team, play a system which is difficult to play against but we're the home team, we've been doing well - not including Forest - and we have to carry that on."
