Teddy ready for Trotters test

Posted on 19 April 2002  - 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).

Teddy Sheringham expects a tough time at Bolton as Sam Allardyce's men no doubt go looking for revenge.

We travel to the Reebok Stadium on Saturday having beaten the Trotters three times at the Lane this season - including 6-0 and 4-0 victories in cup competitions.

Bolton could also do with a point or two to absolutely make sure of their Premiership survival.

"It will be a tough game," said skipper Teddy. "They are still battling for their lives. They need the points and again, it's a good game for us.

"We're getting towards the end of the season and if we want to do anything next season, it's nice to go into these games and produce the right performances.

"There is quite a bit on the game. I'm sure they will have it in their minds to set the record straight a little but for them, their main ambition is to stay in the Premier League so they need the points on that front.

"We want to finish as high as possible. We've three games to go, there is a lot of pride in the team and we want to carry on performing how we should."

Meanwhile, Teddy is refusing to take anything for granted about his place in England's World Cup plans - even though most pundits seems to have booked his place in Sven Goran Eriksson's squad.

He insisted: "Everyone said it was cast in stone that we were going to win the Worthington Cup Final and we didn't.

"People can do the talking but until things are finalised then I won't take anything for granted."

Teddy certainly showed again why he would be so valuable in the finals with another excellent cameo performance after coming on a substitute for the final 23 minutes of England's 4-0 win against Paraguay on Wednesday night.

Every pass hit its target and he was responsible for a Paraguay defender heading into his own net for the fourth goal.

He reflected: "It went okay but I think the game was over by the time I came on.

"It was important we got the first goal, Michael Owen did brilliantly, great ball in, great header. That set us off and we didn't look back from there."
