Spurs ready for stern test

Published Add your comment

Tottenham assistant manager Kevin Bond has urged his players to be at their resilient best in order to leave St. James' Park with three points on Sunday.

Spurs travel to the north-east to face an unbeaten Newcastle side, who currently occupy fourth spot in the Barclays Premier League.

A win for Spurs will take them level on points with the Magpies and Bond knows what a stern test it will be to secure a victory against Alan Pardew's side.

“Sometimes you need to grind out results and be strong and I certainly think we’re going to need to be resilient," Bond told the official Tottenham website.

"Hopefully we’ll do that and get a good result."

Bond was also full of praise for the Toon and, although he admits their form has been somewhat as a surprise, Harry Redknapp's right-hand man warned they are not to be underestimated.


“We always knew that they (Newcastle) were capable of good things, but they’ve probably started the season better than maybe one or two people expected," he added.

“I’ve seen them play. They’re a strong side, well-organised, well-balanced and they’ve had a really good start to the season.

"Newcastle is always a tough place to go. It’s going to be a hard day and a difficult day, but one that we’re looking forward to.”
