Pre-match: Middlesbrough

Posted on 23 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).

Mauricio Taricco doesn't believe our recent form against Middlesbrough will have any bearing on Sunday's televised clash at the Lane.

Boro have beaten us 3-0 twice and 3-0 on our home soil in recent seasons and topped that with a 5-1 thrashing at the Riverside in May.

However, Steve McClaren's men arrive in N17 in the bottom three of the Premiership while we've gone four matches unbeaten having won at Leicester City on Sunday.

"Hopefully the form against Middlesbrough will change," said Mauricio. "It's happened but this time it will be different game, a different approach.

"They need points, so do we. It will be a tough game and they have quality players.

"I didn't watch the game against Newcastle but I think they dominated it, so it won't be easy. We are back at home after a couple of good results and it would be nice to continue that."
