Tonight marks a few milestones at the Lane - including the 1,000th Premier League game to be shown live on Sky Sports.

1,000th game live on Sky Sports

Tonight’s game against Blackburn Rovers will be the 1,000th Premier League match to be shown live on Sky Sports.

The first was back on August 16, 1992, when former Spur Teddy Sheringham scored the only goal of the game for Nottingham Forest as they beat Liverpool.

Here are some interesting stats from the previous 999 games...
• Over 2,500 goals scored
• Over 70 own goals scored – Michael Duberry has scored the most to date with three. Ex-Spur Stephen Carr is the only player to score one for two clubs; Spurs v Boro in 1999-00 and Newcastle at Charlton in 2004-05.
• Thierry Henry is the top scorer with 52 goals.
• 6-0 is the biggest win and has been achieved three times by Manchester United, Chelsea and Fulham beating Bolton, Barnsley and Norwich respectively.

We have featured in 105 of those 999 games, winning 35, drawing 29 and losing 44. We have scored 146 goals and conceded 159.

Among the classic games in which we’ve been involved are the 4-1 win here against Manchester United on January 1, 1996; the 4-2 victory over Southampton in February, 1993, when we scored four times in five minutes; the 4-5 defeat to Arsenal two seasons ago and of course this season’s 4-3 win over West Ham at Upton Park.

One million mark at the Lane this season

It's another full house at the Lane tonight - and that means we'll topple the million mark for the season. We currently stand at 984,952 cumulatively for competitive games in 2006-07, so another 35,000-plus means we'll pass the 1,000,000.

250-up for JJ

Jermaine Jenas is due to make the 250th senior appearance of his club career tonight. He made his senior debut for Nottingham Forest against Wolverhampton Wanderers in an FA Cup tie on January 7, 2001. His current tally of 249 games comprises 33 for Forest, 151 for Newcastle United and 65 since joining us during August, 2005. To date he has played in 193 league games plus 56 in various cup competitons.

100 goals stats

Dimitar Berbatov's opener at Charlton was our 100th goal of the campaign. We last scored 100 or more goals in a season during 1986-87, netting 109 in 57 matches - 68 in 42 league games, 16 in 6 in the FA Cup, 25 in 9 in the League Cup. The closest we came to the century mark in Premiership years was 91 goals in 1994-95. Since the start of the 1980's also achieved 100 plus in 1983-84 (102) and 1984-85 (108).
