+Pre-match: Nottingham Forest

Posted on 1 March 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).

Paul Robinson expects a real battle when we go again in the FA Cup 5th round against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

The replay is a result of the 1-1 conclusion at the Lane the Sunday before last where a Jermain Defoe opener on the stroke of half-time proved not to be enough, with Gareth Taylor netting a leveller ten minutes into the second period.

"That is an important game for us," insisted the goalkeeper, looking ahead to the replay. "We let ourselves down here last week and have to go up there and put it right.

"It will be a battle, I don't imagine the pitch will be great and they are going to be slinging everything they can at us.

"Hopefully we can play the way we did against Fulham, put in a calm performance and get a result. They can't just sit back, they are at home and will be expected to do something - we will hopefully exploit any gaps they might leave."
