Newcastle midfielder James Perch has warned his team-mates they will have to deal with the complete player if they are to return from Tottenham with a positive result.

The side currently sitting in fifth place in the Barclays Premier League will attempt to close the gap on their counterparts in third when the Magpies arrive at White Hart Lane. Alan Pardew's men will run out knowing they will have their work cut out after securing a 2-2 draw with Spurs at home in October only courtesy of Shola Ameobi's late equaliser.

In particular, they will have to find a way of curbing in-form Wales international Gareth Bale, who has scored three times in as many games to enhance his growing reputation as one of the hottest properties in English football. Perch said: "He's come on in leaps and bounds over the last couple of years."
