Rose: Spurs want Europa win


Spurs starlet Danny Rose is aiming to make a statement in the club's final Europa League group game tomorrow night.

Harry Redknapp's side travel to Ireland to face Shamrock Rovers knowing qualification is out of their hands in Group A, with PAOK needing to beat Rubin Kazan and a five-goal swing going in the north London side's favour.

Rose is eager to take the permutations out of the pre-match preparations though, and focus on picking up the win in double as a first priority.

"We always go out to win every game and Thursday night will be no different," said the left-winger.

"Whatever team steps out, we will want to win that game.

"We started poorly against PAOK in the first 20 minutes and we paid for it by going 2-0 down. We were camped in their half in the second half but couldn’t turn it around.

"With the defeat at Stoke on Sunday, we’re all determined to put things right and Thursday is the first chance to do that."

The 21-year-old England youth international has been given his first-team chance in the competition this season, but has only made six Barclays Premier League appearances during his professional career at White Hart Lane.

He became an instant hero with the club's fans after scoring against Arsenal in April 2010 on league debut, the only senior goal of his Spurs career thus far.
