DAWS SEEKS DERBY TREAT
Michael Dawson is hoping it turns out to be a memorable experience when we make the short journey to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Michael Dawson is hoping it turns out to be a memorable experience when we make the short journey to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.The fearless central defender will doubtless be lining up to take part in his fourth North London Derby encounter and it is fair to say that the prospect of grabbing the three points has more than crossed his mind.
"It would be fantastic because it means so much to everyone at the club and the supporters," considered Daws. "We've done it at home against Chelsea so what a place this would be to get an away win.
"Arsenal are three points above us and we would love to be on 22 points come Saturday night. It would be a day we wouldn't forget.
"I find the games exciting and I've been involved in three now. We've drawn the last two and now a win would be great.
"I wanted to be involved in these games at the top level to test myself, it is my second full season in the Premiership and I've got to keep working hard and improving in order to help the team win these type of games and stay in Europe next season."
League wins on the road are only missing element of what is turning into a promising campaign. Aside from the leading two the table is congested with only five points between ourselves in 11th and 3rd place. By the same token, there are just six between 11th and 18th.
"It would be good to be further up the table and we need to put back to back wins together," he continued. "A few away wins puts you right back up there. We're in 11th but also not far away from 15th so we know we've got to buckle down and work hard."
