Tottenham defender Michael Dawson has urged his side to find their form once again in order to secure a second successive season in the Champions League.

Spurs are four points adrift of fourth placed Manchester City in the Barclays Premier League and - although the north Londoners retain a game in hand - they only have themselves to blame for their current league position.

Harry Redknapp's side have only picked up just two points from their last three outings in the top-flight - with all the encounters coming against relegation-threatened opposition.

These are they type of games Spurs need to take maximum points from if they are to keep their European dream alive and they will have the opportunity to close the gap on City when they travel to basement club Wigan on Saturday.

“It will be a difficult game, just like we’ve had in recent weeks,” said Dawson. “West Ham came to White Hart Lane last time out and frustrated us, they defended well but we had chances to win the game.


“It will be no different at Wigan. Just look at our recent matches against Blackpool (1-3), Wolves (3-3) and West Ham (0-0). Teams are fighting for their lives down there.

“Hopefully we can go there and get back to winning ways in the Premier League. We need to, because we’re determined to finish fourth. That’s our aim this season.

“We also owe them one after losing 1-0 to them at White Hart Lane earlier in the season.”
