After a season of ups and downs at White Hart Lane, Peter Crouch is determined to give Tottenham fans something to savour before the summer break.

Confirmation of a place in next season's Europa League would be one way to repay the faith of the Lane diehards, with Spurs remaining in pole position to secure fifth spot.

It's undoubtedly been a frustrating few months for Spurs supporters and players alike, with a run of only two wins in 11 league fixtures seeing them relinquish a spot in the Champions League to Manchester City.

However, three points at Liverpool last weekend - with a comfortable 2-0 victory - was more like the Tottenham of the earlier stages of the season, who so famously dispatched of Inter and AC Milan in Europe.

Birmingham await Spurs on Sunday, with the Blues fighting to stay in the Barclays Premier League for another season. Crouch, however, knows that victory for the home side will mean continental competition next season - something which Spurs fans have come to expect.


"We didn’t want the season to just fade away [after missing out on the Champions League]," said the 30-year-old striker.

"The fans who travelled to Liverpool expected the team to perform and we didn’t want it to just drift off.

"We’d missed out on the Champions League next season and it would have been easy to let the season fall away but the manager said there was no way we could do that.

"To beat an in-form Liverpool team at Anfield was great and we have to make sure we finish the season strongly in front of our own fans against Birmingham."
