Robbo seeks Derby reward

Posted on 25 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).

Paul Robinson is hoping the team can reward the fans for their excellent support this season by taking something from the Derby encounter at Highbury tonight.


The England No.1 is well aware of what the game means to supporters and that getting a result would keep us well on track for a top seven finish in what has been a promising campaign.


"Our next game is a big one and I don't need telling that," insisted Robbo. "We'd like to take something away from Highbury on Monday, it is a big game not only for us, but for the supporters as well.


"We know if we win there it could make their season. Hopefully we can reward the way they have been with us this year and take something with a big performance.


"We have played well away from home but just haven't scored enough goals. We've had one of the tightest defences and played reasonably well - lets hope we can get that win on Monday.


"We have built ourselves a little platform this season to build on over the next couple of years. We can achieve something this year and it would be a massive disappointment if we don't, in the next couple of years, progress from where we are."


Meanwhile, the goalkeeper reflected that tonight's venue has not been a happy hunting ground for him before - something he is keen to address.


"Highbury has not been a great place for me to play before, I've been hit for four I think every time I've been there. I don't like it and want to go there and win. Turn it around and put in a good performance.


"It has not been a lucky ground for me, but this has been a new team and a whole new start for me. It has been a good season and I need to take that into Monday night's game."
