Huddlestone eyes another scalp

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Huddlestone wants his team-mates to make it three big wins on the spin to keep their Champions League qualification dream alive this season.

Harry Redknapp's side have won back-to-back games against Arsenal and Chelsea and now with Premier League title-chasers and holders Manchester United up next at Old Trafford on Saturday, Huddlestone is hoping they can take their form into the showdown.

With a fourth-place finish a realistic opportunity, the England World Cup hopeful has backed his tired colleagues to come good.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said:"Considering the injuries we've had, to play as many games as we have done in a short space of time is a credit to the lads and the quality we've got and the fitness we've shown.

"Everybody would have been tired by the Chelsea game but the adrenaline and knowing what the prize is at the end got us through it.

"But the games don't get any easier and now it's Man Utd away. They did us a favour last weekend by beating City but it's going to be a hard place to go to and our record up there isn't great.

"We've just got to go into it with the confidence we've shown over the last two games and hopefully we can get something out of it."
