Teddy's target

Posted on 8 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 insists our season is still 'in the melting pot'.

The skipper is still targeting seventh spot in the Premiership and is well aware how important that makes this weekend's 14th and final London derby of the season against West Ham at the Lane - Hammers have sneaked ahead of us in that seventh spot.

"The season is still in the melting pot," said Teddy. "We're still hoping we can get to seventh and that's what we're going to aim for.

"Obviously, that makes West Ham important. Four or five teams have a chance of getting that seventh spot and we're one of them so we'll give it our all. We got some nice games coming up and we want to finish well."

Teddy was naturally disappointed with the outcome of Saturday's north London derby. "It would have been nice to come away from there with a result," he added.

"We had a game plan and it was going well. They are flying, confident and we knew we had to stifle them a bit and that's exactly what we did.

"We knew we would always get a chance, perhaps not from a penalty but that's how it turned out and it was nice to get back on level terms.

"But to get beat from a penalty as well was very demoralising. It was disappointing that we couldn't do something about their title aspirations."
