Adebayor: Spurs supporters are crucial

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor believes the supporters can make a difference during a run of four consecutive home games in 11 days.

Harry Redknapp's side face West Brom tonight, with Everton the visitors next Wednesday and Wolves the following weekend in consecutive Barclays Premier League matches at White Hart Lane.

Cheltenham Town also make the trip to north London in the FA Cup on Saturday, and Adebayor knows four straight victories would kick-start a potentially great 2012 for the club.

"We have three league matches at home and we have to take it a game at a time and try to take maximum points," the Togolese international striker told the official Spurs website.

"There are important matches and we need our fans right behind us. We need the voice, the noise from our 12th man, the fans. I'm sure they will be with us. We have to do everything to take the three points."

The Manchester City loanee has scored nine league goals for Tottenham this term, but was unable to add to his tally during the 1-1 draw at Swansea over the weekend.

Rafael Van der Vaart's striker was cancelled out by Scott Sinclair's 84th minute equaliser, and Adebayor admits it was a bitter pill to swallow for the side in third.

"It was a tough one, but they are a good side. We wanted to get the three points but that’s football. We have to take it and keep going," added the forward.

"We created chances and could have converted them but they played some amazing football as well and deserved to draw."
