Teddy's Bridge to cross

Posted on 13 March 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 feels that playing Chelsea so soon after Sunday's defeat is the ideal fixture as the team attempt to get back on track.

Many would suspect that Chelsea would be the last side the boys would wish to face after elimination from the FA Cup, but Teddy sees it slightly differently.

"I think it is one of the best, to be honest," he insisted. "We'll see what happens - we're looking forward to the game."

The fact that Chelsea currently occupy a likely UEFA Cup spot in the Premiership means that it is a position we are chasing in the remaining ten games of the season, making tonight's game something of a six-pointer from our perspective.

"It is yes. We've still got 30 points to play for and we want to be doing ourselves justice, as such.

"Once three or four of those games are out of the way we'll have a better look at what we can achieve.

"We won't be better off if we don't win those games so it's important that we get back on a winning trail and then see where we are in three, four, five games time."

Teddy does agree that, despite the cup exits, the season has been a positive one, but says this is no time to start assessing seasons.

"I think so, but it's at the end of the season you look at that. You can't stop now and say it's been a fair season because 30 points down the way you could end up nearer a relegation spot and that would end up a disappointing season.

"We've got to keep plugging away for the fans and everybody else. We've got ten games to go and we want to get some points on the board."
