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).

Clive Allen believes Jamie Slabber is back on track after a difficult spell so far this season.

The young striker has returned to the scoresheet in our last two reserve games.

It's been a tough campaign for the 20-year-old after making the breakthrough to the Premiership last season - setting up Teddy Sheringham' goal against Liverpool, no less - with a foot injury leaving him on the sidelines.

"Jamie has done well," said Clive, one of the most prolific strikers in the club's history. "It's tough for the young players because they make progress very quickly.

"The staff at the club have seen a lot of ability in Jamie but a lot happened very quickly and inevitably, you tend to take one step forward and three back.

"He's played for the Under-19s this season, the reserves and he's having to cope with all sorts of situations as they arise every week.

"It's good for him that he's back in the goals, that will help his confidence and it's all part of the learning curve.

"He's showed a great attitude in training and he has to continue putting that into practice for the reserves, as he has in the last couple of weeks.

"He certainly has an eye for goal. As a striker, when you are not playing well, if you are scoring goals everything else falls into place very quickly.

"He's been in the goals and now his timing is there in training, he's confident and he has the chance now to push on again."
