Spurs at Wembley is just what the doctor ordered

We are on our way to Wembley after being drawn against Tottenham Hotspur in the last 16 of the League Cup and it promises to be a fantastic occasion for us.

We are on our way to Wembley after being drawn against Tottenham Hotspur in the last 16 of the League Cup and it promises to be a fantastic occasion for us.

It’s always a spicy affair when we play them and I’m sure we’ll take a fair number to the national stadium – which should make it a fantastic atmosphere. I’m sure Slaven Bilic will play a very strong side for what is an important game for the club and hopefully the match will inspire the players to rise to the occasion.

When I was a player we always looked forward to the cup ties and if we can win the game and go through it could really boost our confidence after a difficult start to the season.

The fixture comes at a difficult time for Spurs – in the middle of games against Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid – so you wouldn’t be surprised if they made some changes or took their eye off the ball.

The competition is looked down upon by a lot of people but it is still the chance of a trophy and, even before the draw, I wanted to see us play a strong team and try and win it. It won’t be easy to go all the way but you do start dreaming.
