WTPS: Watson warning

Posted on 9 October 2001  - 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).

Tranmere boss Dave Watson warns in the Sun that Glenn will not be looking forward to a return to Prenton Park after last season's 4-3 defeat while in charge of Southampton.

"I'm sure the Spurs lads weren't cheering when they heard the draw," said Watson. The Sun also said Dean Richards would not be relishing the trip for the same reason, but Deano need not worry. He is cup-tied after playing in the Worthington Cup for Saints against Brighton in the last round.

Former Rovers boss John Aldridge also feels we will be up against it tonight, he was in charge when Saints lost a 3-0 half-time lead.

"It will certainly be in the back of Glenn's mind," Aldridge told the Daily Mail. "He will be aware of what can happen and I would imagine every Tranmere player will make sure he doesn't forget.

"It's a big test for Spurs, make no mistake. They will believe they can win this competition and there is a lot of pressure on them. Glenn would be wary of how Spurs capitulated against Manchester United and will be telling his team that Tranmere are also capable of coming back from the brink."
