+Pre-match: Norwich City

Posted on 23 December 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).

Paul Robinson is expecting no easy pickings when we travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City on Boxing Day.

The goalkeeper remembers well Norwich's visit to the Lane in September when Nigel Worthington's side secured one point and could have banked all three when Darren Huckerby stretched our defence with his pace in the closing stages.

"There are no easy game these days, especially going to Norwich," previewed the England international. "They took a well-earned point at the Lane, but hopefully we can go there and win with the confidence we have at the moment.

"I know their goalkeeper Robert Green from England duty. Greenie is doing well and is a good lad - he is getting a lot of practice at the moment, unfortunately for him!"

Confidence is high in the camp at the moment following four straight wins, the last being the 5-1 trouncing of Southampton. Paul reflected that it was vital to register a good performance on home turf.

"It was a great result, we've played well the last couple of weeks and things are starting to click for us. We've been doing it away from home and we were a little disappointed and concerned that we weren't doing it at home - where the fans are brilliant to us.

"We were managing to win away and it was pleasing to put on a performance like that at the Lane.

"Confidence is a very big thing in football. Once you get a couple of wins under your belt you start believing in yourself and start playing a lot better."
