We can do it - Pascal

Pascal Chimbonda is convinced we can turn around our UEFA Cup deficit against Shakhtar Donetsk - citing the fact that we're back at home as the key.

We were somewhat unfortunate to suffer a 2-0 defeat in last week's first leg of the last 32 tie in Ukraine when, following a solid defensive display, goals in the 78th and 88th minutes left us with an uphill task in Thursday night's second leg.

However, defender Pascal is confident we can overcome that obstacle back at the Lane.

"We are two goals behind in the tie and of course it will be difficult but we are now at home and that will make a difference," he said.

"I thought we played well in periods of the game in Shakhtar and had opportunities where we might have scored.

"I think at home, in front of our fans, we can do it. We still have a chance.

"When we play at White Hart Lane anything can happen and we all hope we can do it because we want to go forward in the UEFA Cup.

"They are a good team but we would love to turn it around."
