Sully: The boy Don well

Posted on 13 April 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).

Neil Sullivan knows more than most about one of Sunderland’s main threats on Saturday.

Look beyond Quinn and Phillips and one player has led from the front as Sunderland battle for European football — Don Hutchison.

Hutchison has been in fine form for both Sunderland and Scotland and has already hit double-figures in terms of goals for the season from his normal berth in midfield.

In-form goalkeeper Neil is Hutchison's team-mate at international level but faces the prospect of keeping him out at the Stadium of Light.

Neil commented: “Don is a player in good form. He’s been that way with Scotland every time we’ve met up.

“We’ve played him sometimes in midfield, sometimes up front and he does a good job in every position.

“It’s the same at Sunderland as well and I noticed last time that he played up front with Kevin Phillips. We’ll have to see where he turns up on Saturday but he’s a very good player and one to be watched.”

‘Sully’, heading for a landslide win in the Official Spurs Website’s Player of the Month for March, insisted it for the best that we were back in action on Tuesday, a 2-1 win against Bradford City, after Sunday’s semi-final dismay.

We didn’t have a lot of time to sit down and sulk, we had to get up and get on with it,” he said. “We’ve some big games to come and it’s a tough run in.

“Everyone was bitterly disappointed after Sunday. We were in the next day trying to get it out of our system. The next job was Bradford. That was a good game and good result and we now want to finish as high as possible.”

We are priced at 100/30 to beat Sunderland - click here for details.
