Sky's the limit


Jamie O'Hara sees no reason why we cannot be challenging at the top end of the table sooner rather than later.

But he knows we must win our crunch game with Everton at The Lane on Sunday in order to do so.

Thursday's winning goalscorer against NEC Nijmegen in the UEFA Cup is confident of the team's ability during a run which has seen us lose only once in our last nine games in all competitions.

And Jamie sees a clash with the Toffees, who currently sit seventh in the Barclays Premier League table, as a perfect test.

"Everton's always tough, but if we go out there with the confidence we've been showing of late, the three points are there for us to take," he said.

"Everything's been fantastic of late, bar the one slip-up against Fulham, and we are capable of being up where Everton are at the moment.

"If we can just keep the ball rolling, nothing can stop us - we look fantastic as a team and as a squad."

Jamie's strike against Nijmegen was his second of the season, in which he has had to work hard for a place in Harry Redknapp's side.

"It's good to get goals and I thought I had chances to score more last night," the England Under-21 international added.

"Spurs is such a big club with a fantastic squad that you've got to be patient sometimes, but when you get your chance, you've got to show the manager you're capable of playing to keep yourself in there.

"But I like that role the manager gave me because it gives me a little bit more freedom in midfield to make those late runs into the box and get yourself on the end of things."

A full and exclusive interview with Jamie is now available on Spurs TV Online, in which he also comments on the latest crop of players following in his footsteps by making the step up to the First Team from our Academy.
