Robbo's reaction

Posted on 4 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 considered the draw against Birmingham a fair result, but concedes there was disappointment over the outcome.


It was another good display on the road from the team that has not perhaps yielded due reward. It was looking good when Stephen Kelly shot us into the lead just before the hour mark, only for Darren Carter to bundle through a few challenges to level seven minutes later.


The reason Robbo takes positives from the point is due to the fact Birmingham could have snatched it in the final stages when Clinton Morrison shot just wide from Damien Johnson's pinpoint cross.


"We played well, dominated the first half and created a lot of chances," reflected the England No.1. "In the end we picked up a point when we could have lost the game and it was probably a fair result in the end.


"We had the chances and their keeper made a couple of good saves - I think they will be more pleased with the draw than we are.


"Carter rode three or four tackles and should never have got as far as he did. When he got as far as the penalty spot it was an easy task for him.


"It is a disappointment and we have got difficult games coming up, Newcastle at home next then Liverpool. We saw this as probably one we should have won."


It has been a busy couple of weeks for the keeper, who reports himself more than satisfied with a couple of clean sheets while on World Cup qualifying duty with England.


"I'm really pleased, it is nice to be back home though after a spell away in a hotel. We put in good performances and got the results and we can now put that to bed until next season."
