Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has urged his players to not slip up when we host Reading at the Lane on New Year’s Day.
We have lost just one of our last eight games and surprisingly our away form has been better than at home this season and we cannot afford anything less than three points against McDermott’s men.
With seven points from nine over the festive period, the only blotch on our copy book is the drab draw against Stoke.
“The problem with that fixture is that we have done extremely well away from home, but we have to keep up the momentum,” Villas-Boas told a press conference.
“We have to keep our home form going and it would be silly for us not to continue at this level, so it is a fixture in which we really want to get the three points to close finally the festive fixtures with three wins, hopefully, and one draw.
“(The players) have been excellent. The December that we had shows exactly that.
“We had big, big results against difficult teams and the Europa League in between.
“If we manage to take this form into January, it would be excellent.”
