Reid predicts Royals challenge

Posted on 29 July 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).

Andy Reid knows what's in store when we visit Reading for our latest pre-season friendly on Saturday.


The winger expects Reading to try and prove a point against Premiership opposition at the Madejski Stadium.


The boot was on the other foot for Andy when he played for Nottingham Forest against us in a friendly at the City Ground almost a year ago to the day.


The Irish international said: “I know what it’s like having played for a First Division side against higher opposition in these friendlies - you want to raise your game and show them that you deserve to be at that level.


“Reading are a good side and as every team from the lower division wants to do when they play a team from a higher division, they’ll want to prove a point.”


The Royals, managed by Steve Coppell, were pipped to a place in the play-offs by West Ham last season — the Hammers were eventually promoted.


“I played them once when I was at Forest last season, we won 1-0 but they are a well organised side with some very talented players,” added Andy.


“It will be a tough game and we have to go about it in the right way.”
