Steff back for seconds

Posted on 19 November 2001  - 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).

Steffen Iversen makes his comeback in a powerful Spurs reserve team to face Fulham at Stevenage Borough on Monday evening, kick-off 7pm.

Our Norwegian hitman has missed most of the season with damaged ankle ligaments sustained on international duty in September.

He is now ready to take the first tentative steps on the road to a full playing return. He is joined in an attacking looking line-up by Sergei Rebrov and Steven Ferguson.

Dave Beasant plays his first game for the club and other players with first team experience include Ben Thatcher, Goran Bunjevcevic, Anthony Gardner, Simon Davies and Oyvind Leonhardsen.

"We've got a strong team tonight," said coach Colin Calderwood. "All the more experienced ones have given an indication of wanting to play.

"Hopefully they will get in the mood early in the game, the pitch has been very good there up to now. If that's the same, Fulham are going to be a side who pass it, very similar to their first team - I think it could be a very entertaining game.

"They beat West Ham last week and we had a draw against them. It should be a good game but, looking at our team, I am expecting a lot of from them. If they give effort and energy then they'll do alright."

Team: Beasant, Thelwell, Thatcher, Piercy, Bunjevcevic, Gardner, Davies, Leonhardsen, Ferguson, Rebrov, Iversen. Subs: Consorti, Snee, Toner, Kelly, Kamanan.
