So solid crew

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).

Stephen Carr says it will be vital for us to be solid as a unit to counter Leeds United's attacking threat on Saturday.

The Elland Road outfit rediscovered their goalscoring touch in spectacular style by hitting Charlton for six at the Valley at the weekend.

Mark Viduka and Harry Kewell accounted for five of those six goals while Alan Smith created three and won two penalties.

That win ended a run of five straight defeats and eased slightly what had seemed a real threat of relegation.

Meanwhile, we ended a run of three straight defeats with a 2-1 win against Birmingham City to re-ignite our European hopes.

Steve reasoned: "It will be another hard game after they've just beaten Charlton 6-1 but that's what they are capable of on their day.

"They have the quality that can punish teams so it's important for us to set our stall out and be solid as a unit.

"People say they are too good to go down but people said that about us as well when we were struggling down there a few years ago.

"It will be a very difficult game because they still needs results.

"But we need a result to stay up there as well and give us a chance of getting into Europe. It will be a tough one but we're looking forward to it."
