+Pre-match: Southampton

Posted on 17 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).

Chris Hughton insists we're concentrating on our own game despite of the Harry Redknapp-factor at Southampton.

Redknapp brings his Saints outfit to the Lane on Saturday for his first away game since taking charge last week.

His arrival almost had the expected effect in his first game when Saints took a 2-0 lead against Middlesbrough only to let Steve McClaren's men level with two late goals.

"They would have been very disappointed that they didn't win last week and, of course, the club would have been lifted with Harry's arrival," said coach Chris.

"Having said that, the focal point for us has to be our own game.

"We've done very well away from home in the last few games and, in fact, all season but if we're going to push up the table we need to have a good Christmas and it starts here.

"It's always an important period and it would be nice to start with three points.

"It's about us seeing the opportunity to get a home win and keeping this run going. We have to think about the things that will make us play well and give us the advantage."
