Football - Dawson: Spurs will bounce back

Michael Dawson is sure his 300th Tottenham appearance will not be ruined by yet another defeat.

PA Sport Report

Tottenham started the season impressively, but their form has dipped of late.

Their last result - a 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle - came as no surprise to those fans who have voiced their concerns about a lack of goals and fluency recently.

Spurs travel to big-spending title contenders Manchester City on Sunday, but their captain is not concerned about the prospect of another reverse on what will be a special occasion for him.

"We had the disappointment (of losing) against Arsenal and West Ham and we came back and put it right," said Dawson, who moved on to 299 appearances for the north London club against the Magpies.

"We've had some great results after those defeats.

"We've tried not to dwell on the Newcastle defeat and we'll come back again. That's the spirit we have at the club."
