Wilson's goal

Wilson Palacios scored his one and only Spurs goal against Saturday's opponents Hull - but he's not concentrating on netting again against the Tigers.

The midfielder provided a finish any striker would have been proud of to score our second goal in the convincing 5-1 win at the KC Stadium back in August.

Jermain Defoe stole the headlines that night with a hat-trick and Robbie Keane netted the fifth in a performance that made everyone sit up and take notice.

We now face Hull again in our first league match of 2010 following last week's postponement at Anfield. We kick-off at the Lane at 3pm - commentary live on Spurs TV Online.

Wilson broke into a wide smile on recalling his goal but he insists his thoughts are solely on taking three points this weekend.

"I remember that goal well," he said. "It was very important as it was my first goal for the club but the most important thing is that we win and get three points on Saturday. If I score, it's a bonus.

"It's another very tough game as teams like Hull will come here and make it difficult for us. However, our mentality is to win these home games and to try and finish as high as possible."

We go into the game fifth in the Barclays Premier League following Manchester City's win against Blackburn on Monday night.

Wilson, who has started 19 of our 20 league games so far, declared his satisfaction at our position going into the second half of the campaign.

"I think the team has been going very well," said the Honduran international.

"We're in a good position, we've let a few points slip but I think we deserve to be where we are in the table. Everyone is determined that this will be a successful year."
