Newcastle vs Spurs - Tim's preview
11 February 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Tim Sherwood is looking to build momentum at this crucial stage of the campaign with a positive result at Newcastle on Wednesday night.
Sunday’s key victory over Everton made it seven wins, two draws and one defeat in our last 10 matches as we climbed back above the Toffees into fifth place, three points behind Liverpool.
Now we face eighth-placed Newcastle at St James Park, kicking-off at 7.45pm.
“Everton was a massive three points for us against a team who were directly above us, so to leapfrog them was a huge plus,” said Tim.
“On their day, Newcastle can beat anyone. We know they have threats so we have to respect that, hopefully nullify what they have to offer and impose ourselves.
“You have to have character to go and play in front of a big, expectant crowd, which it is at Newcastle, and we’re hoping to keep them quiet. If we do, we can get a positive result.
“We have to concentrate on our own game and a big result against Everton will mean nothing if we can’t capitalise at Newcastle.
“It’s all about momentum, absolutely and the confidence that breeds in the team. Every game is huge now.”
