Way to go, Rohan

Posted on 20 January 2004  - 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).

Rohan Ricketts acknowledges his hardest task is maintaining a place in the squad after his fantastic start to the campaign.

The young midfielder has caught the eye in 22 appearances after making a surprise Premiership debut on the opening day at Birmingham.

However, the dazzling form of Stephane Dalmat, the return of Simon Davies, the emergence of John Jackson and the arrival of Michael Brown have combined to push Rohan down the pecking order in recent weeks.

He wants to battle back and won't have harmed his cause with a stunning strike to secure victory for the reserves against Leicester on Monday night, his second goal in two reserve outings.

"I haven't been in the last two squads," said Rohan. "There is a lot of competition at the moment and I've got to work hard to get back in there.

"I've played the last couple of reserve games, scored a couple of goals and that's the best thing you can do.

"I've been in the squad this season but the hardest thing is staying in there.

"You have to keep working hard every day and make sure the manager knows you are still there.

"You have to believe in yourself, don't let your head drop and keep working hard, focus and knuckle down. That's what I'm doing."
