Pre-match: Leicester City

Posted on 14 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 isn't at all surprised at Leicester City's return to the Premiership under Micky Adams.

The former Fulham and Brighton boss guided the Foxes through a tricky spell of administration back into the top flight at the first attempt following relegation in 2001-02.

Leicester have showed signs of their capabilities - not least the 4-0 hammering of Leeds United - but we travel to the Walkers Stadium for the first time with the home side second from bottom.

"I don't know Micky that well but I know he's a very good manager," said Chris. "It's no surprise that he's done ever so well there.

"He was one who was always going to go on and manage in the Premiership and you can see why now.

"He's done ever so well and one thing you know when you face his teams is that they will be spirited, determined and he's brought quality into the squad as well.

"They had a very good victory against Leeds, they are filling out the stadium at home and it's a passionate crowd.

"That all adds up to making it a difficult game for us."
