Green targets Tottenham

Robert Green will look to make it two clean sheets out of two against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon - his 90th consecutive top-flight appearance for the club.

The England No1 had a fine start to the season, after helping his country to a 2-2 draw against the Netherlands ten days ago and then playing a key role as West Ham United won 2-0 at Wolverhampton Wanderers last Saturday.

"It's been a fantastic few months for myself and I am really enjoying it," he said. "You know, you work hard and hope to get those rewards, with West Ham and now, England, it has been the icing on the cake."

When asked about his chances of appearing at the FIFA World Cup, Green was in cautious mood despite his outstanding form. "We'll have to wait and see, I just want to keep going and keep playing and help to take West Ham as far as we can."

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy singled Green out for special praise last weekend and he will need to be at his best to deny a free-scoring Spurs side led by Jermain Defoe. The 29-year-old said there was plenty of confidence gained from the victory at Molineux.

"It was good performance and a good win. From the chances we had in the first half, we could have been a few more up, but on the whole we felt fairly comfortable in the match. We are creating chances, we certainly showed we can score from them and all in all, it was a good win for us.

"All the boys who were here last season and are still here, know what we can do as we proved last season. It's a case of hopefully adding to that if we can but the manager has great faith that what he has got and is good enough, so it is about getting points on the board early and seeing where that takes us.

"We want to improve on last season, build on from there. We have made a good start and want to go on from there. We've given ourselves a little platform."
