Boys in step
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).
David Pleat reports that he detected a 'spring in the step of the players' the day before the convincing Carling Cup win over Coventry City.
The caretaker boss explained that there was a natural reaction on Monday to the departure of Glenn Hoddle and John Gorman the previous evening but, the following day, he sensed a determination to put right recent results at Highfield Road.
"We had three days, Monday wasn't so good - it was windy out there - and it was not easy after what happened on Sunday," reflected David.
"On Tuesday I felt the players had a spring in their step but, I have had that before, and teams haven't neccessarily gone out and played well.
"I suspected there was a feeling that we could do well and we did. We respected Coventry, but I felt we did well in coping with the challenge.
"To all Tottenham supporters, I can assure you that the players gave everything and I am pleased with their effort."
