Just 1,500 seats left for Spurs

Victor Obinna's match-winning contribution at Sunderland has fired the imagination of fans before Saturday's big derby date with Tottenham Hotspur

Ticket Office trade was brisk on Wednesday after Obinna struck the decisive goal in the 2-1 Carling Cup victory. Just 1,500 tickets now remain for the Spurs clash, which will take place at 3pm on Saturday 25 September. The match is not being televised live in England.

Obinna, who shone at the 2010 FIFA World Cup for Nigeria, said: "I am sure it is going to be incredible. It will be a great atmosphere and I am looking forward to it. I know the fans are quite eager to watch the game and support the team. It is going to be the same for the players, we will all be up for it."

It will be another entertaining encounter with UEFA Champions League contenders Spurs set to include new recruits William Gallas and Rafael van der Vaart. The Hammers could also be at full strength with real competition for places - particularly in attack, including exciting new forwards Frederic Piquionne, Pablo Barrera and Victor Obinna.


A season ticket is still the easiest way to make sure of your seat for every single match played at the Boleyn Ground - and fans can get ten per cent off if they buy before Spurs. With a season ticket, you never miss a kick from the comfort of your own reserved seat, and never have the worry of missing out on the big matches.
