Michael Dawson: Tottenham defender targeting back-to-back home wins

Spurs started their road trip with a 4-0 victory at Newcastle before suffering 1-0 defeats at both Dnipro and Norwich.

Dawson now hopes Tim Sherwood's side can get their season back on track by beating Dnipro in the second leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie before overcoming Cardiff City in Sunday's Premier League clash.

"The first leg in Dnipro was a big disappointment and we wanted to go to Norwich and put that right," Dawson told Tottenham's official website.

"We didn't do that, so we get another chance on Thursday back at the Lane, back in front of our fans and it's a big game.

"It's a competition we want to do well in so as disappointed as we are, we have to pick ourselves up.

"We know the fans will be right behind us and they deserve a big performance after the two defeats we've had.

"In football, you always get another chance and on Thursday, we've got that and then on Sunday at home to Cardiff.

"These are two huge games for us."

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
