Robbo keeps it clean

Posted on 25 August 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 maintained his record of no goals conceded so far this season against Blackburn but insisted the outcome of the game proved a disappointment to the players.

The England No.1 has yet to experience picking the ball out of his net since returning from injury with half a game in the pre-season friendly against Porto - a run which also includes 45 minutes for England. The last goal conceded by the team was Lyon's solitary reply in the 3-1 Peace Cup final win in Seoul with Radek Cerny between the posts.

"It is good, but one of the only positive things we can take out of the performance," sighed Robbo after the goalless encounter at Ewood Park. "It was always going to be a tough place to come but we are disappointed with the way we played.

"I think it is two points dropped, with the way we've been playing recently we were looking to pick up maximum points. We didn't play as well as we can do, Blackburn dominated the game and if they had come away with the victory we couldn't have had any arguments.

"It was a horrible scrappy game and I don't think either goalkeeper has made a save. Neither team settled and a draw could be a fair result, but Blackburn might feel hard done by."

In Premiership terms it is now three clean sheets in a row for the team and Robbo quickly agreed another one at the Lane on Saturday would be most welcome...

"You're not wrong! If we keep going and stacking the points up, we'll be alright."
