Bale wants to continue streak



 

Gareth Bale has called on his Tottenham teammates to continue their impressive run of domestic form with another victory this weekend.

Spurs have won six of their last seven Barclays Premier League outings since being humbled by Manchester City in August, and currently sit fifth in the table.

It has been a quite remarkable run for Harry Redknapp's side, and Bale has played no small part in the recent turnaround.

The Welsh winger netted twice in Sunday's victory against Queens Park Rangers to further reinforce the positive vibes around the club ahead of Sunday's clash with Fulham.

"When we're on a winning streak like we are now, there's always a buzz about the place and training is a lot more fun! At the moment it's going really well but we're not getting carried away," Bale said.

"Everybody is buzzing at the moment. We know we're in good form and we know we need to keep it up.

"You go into games feeling much more confident when on a good run. You're on the front foot rather than the back, so we'll definitely be going out there looking to win the game."
