Tim: We'll get it right

Posted on 25 January 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).

Tim Sherwood is determined to make sure the phrase 'after the Lord Mayor's Show' is not used at the Lane come five o'clock on Saturday.

Bolton travel to N17 for the third time in six weeks for an FA Cup fourth round clash just three days after we demolished Chelsea 5-1 to reach the Worthington Cup Final.

Midfielder Tim knows what's coming against Sam Allardyce's men and is adamant if we approach it right, we can progress to the fifth round.

"It will be a tough game," Tim stated. "If we play well we'll win the game and that's what we have to concentrate on, preparing right, approaching it in the right way, not taking the lightly.

"We are all aware of it being after the Lord Mayor's Show after Wednesday night and people will expect us to just roll them over but it won't happen like that.

"We'll have to work for the right to play like we did the other night.

"Bolton sit back and it will be a bit like Everton last week when they frustrated us. Chelsea thought they could come out and play against us and we destroyed them.

"When teams sit back it is very difficult and they have the pace up front. But we're aware of it, we know their strengths and they would rather be in our shoes."

Tim rifled in the vital second goal in Wednesday's semi-final triumph and is now looking forward to his first final.

He added: "There are a lot of games to go before the final so I have to make sure I keep the performances going and get selected.

"It would be great to play in a final. I haven't played in one. I've played in a few semi-finals and this is my first final, so it will be special."
