Teddy's boost

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 believes last night's Worthington Cup win against Cardiff City will lift confidence as we look to bounce back in the Premiership at Blackburn Rovers on Sunday.

Our super skipper bagged his fourth goal in six games to secure the second round victory against the Second Division leaders.

That strike settled any lingering nerves and a bright, perky performance, with the team lifted by the return of Steffen Freund and Mauricio Taricco, arguably deserved greater reward.

"It was always going to be a difficult game," Teddy reflected. "They were competitive and full of confidence so we knew it would be a good game, but a battle as well. That's how it panned out.

"We had a bit more shape, more fluency with our passing and deserved to win.

"It should have been two or three more. At 1-0 you know you're not safe so we tried to keep going and look for the second and third, it just didn't come.

"It was a steady performance, we were expected to go through but the way we played and the chances we created will give us confidence."
