No away-day blues for Gus
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).
Gus Poyet insists that playing away from home must not become a problem for the team as they prepare for the trip to Birmingham on Saturday.
Away form was certainly encouraging in the first third of the season with memorable wins secured at both Charlton and Blackburn. The team were also unlucky to take nothing in the way of points from visits to Old Trafford and Anfield.
However, a little bit of travel sickness has surfaced in recent weeks, with defeats at Burnley, Sunderland and Arsenal.
Buoyed by the win over Leeds at the Lane, Gus now says it is time to start collecting points on the road again.
"That's for sure," stated Gus. "We spoke about that and we want to change the way we have played in the last two or three games away from home. We want to do it as soon as possible and we have a great chance on Saturday."
The trip to St Andrews is, surprisingly, our first game of the season against one of the promoted sides.
"It's strange," reasoned Gus. "At the beginning of the season the promoted teams had to face Manchester United, Arsenal and company. It was like they did it on purpose!
"Now I think it will be even more difficult to play them. Especially because we play away, they had a good result at the weekend and have settled down in the Premiership.
"It's very difficult and a tough game, but we have to look more at ourselves. We have to make sure we play and make them run behind the ball and think about what we are going to do."
So will Gus be okay after the facial injury sustained against Leeds?
"Tell the gaffer I will be alright! It's no problem."
