Simon on Ipswich lapse

Posted on 11 January 2002  - 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).

Simon Davies admits that Ipswich managed to nullify our system at the Lane in December - even after he handed us an early lead.

The Welshman explained that he felt the team sat back after the goal and allowed Ipswich back into the game and struggled to get going again.

Of course, the outcome was a 2-1 defeat compounded by the loss of Teddy.

"They played us well with our system and didn't really let us play," reflected Simon. "You've got to give them credit for that, but we didn't really get going, after we got the goal we sat back a bit for some reason.

"Like I say, they played us well, they didn't let us play our normal game. I think at their place it will be a different matter. They'll be the ones under pressure to perform and we'll be the ones can can counter attack and get our chances."

Simon is glad of the chance to rectify the mishap and says the quick turn around is a bonus.

"Of course it is. We've got the chance to put it behind us and we're looking forward to it."
