The Final Countdown - Rovers threat

Posted on 23 February 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).

Glenn Hoddle and Teddy Sheringham have outlined the attacking potential Blackburn Rovers pose in Sunday's Worthington Cup Final.

Rovers are missing both Craig Short and key midfielder Tugay through suspension but, as the boss pointed out, there is no shortage of options going forward for Graeme Souness.

"They've got matchwinners in their side," insisted Glenn.

"Duff is an exciting player who can win a game. Jansen, I've always liked him and I think he's a great prospect.

"Dunn is a modern-day all-rounder, good at everything and Andy Cole, who is used to the big occasion.

"They have threats from different areas of the pitch and maybe because of their suspension problem they might just go out and relax.

"They have four or five major dangers we have to be aware of."

Skipper Teddy added: "If you look at the two games we've played this season, they beat us convincingly at the start of the season and if you look at the game, they probably deserved something here as well.

"We beat them 1-0 but it could have been 1-1 and if they'd have scored, they might have gone on and nicked a win. There is no way we'll take it lightly because they have a number of players who can turn a game."
