Reidy ready for Boro battle

Posted on 6 May 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 described the clash against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium as the type of game players want to be involved in.


The tussle for 7th place in the Barclays Premiership hots up on Saturday with Boro only behind us on goal difference. The other challengers - Aston Villa and Manchester City - meet at Villa Park before Middlesbrough travel to the City of Manchester Stadium on the final day, while we take on Blackburn at the Lane.


For those not travelling to the North East, the game will be screened live at the Lane and Andy is relishing the prospect of a big finish to the season.


"Definitely, it would be disappointing if we were going into this game with nothing to play for," he reasoned. "We've given ourselves that with the performances we've put in and the points we've got.


"That is testament to the team, we've done really well to put ourselves in this position. It is good to go into games that mean something and need to win.


"Middlesbrough are a strong experienced side and it is no surprise they are pushing for a European spot. We know it will be a tough game, it will be hard up there and they are going to keep things tight.


"It is up to us to put in the level of performance we did on Sunday. Although it is not going to be 5-1, if we give a good account of ourselves we are going to be happy."


Andy, who notched his first Spurs goal against Villa, insists the team have the belief and confidence in each other to build on that performance and secure reward from the season.


"A win like on Sunday kind of emphasises it, but everyone here believes in each other and has confidence in each other's ability anyway. This has never been in doubt, but it is nice to get a big result to keep things moving along."
