+Pre-match: West Brom

Posted on 19 April 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).

Martin Jol is in no doubts as to the importance of Wednesday night's clash against West Brom in the Barclays Premiership.

Saturday's draw at Anfield moved us into seventh spot and that will now be good enough for a UEFA Cup place next season.

We have five game to battle it out for that top seven finish up against the likes of Middlesbrough, Villa and Charlton.

That starts against West Brom on Wednesday when one of the league's form teams arrive at the Lane.

"They were struggling but for the last two months they've played well," said Head Coach Martin.

"It started for them against Fulham, a match they lost with a corner kick in the last minute but they were better and created a lot of chances that night.

"We had difficulties against them in the first half of the FA Cup game at the Lane but then we were much better in the second half and won it easily.

"They are a good side but when you look at it lately Norwich are winning games, against Manchester United for example, West Brom are doing well, even Palace - they all have qualities to stay up but we have to achieve our aim and that's to play for a European place, so we have to win this game."
