We can scare Spurs - Abbott

BY foxsports • September 24, 2012

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott is confident his side can give Tottenham a scare in Wednesday night's Capital One Cup clash.

The Cumbrians are unbeaten in their last five matches and registered their third league success of the season with a 2-1 win at Coventry on Saturday. They also beat Ipswich at home in the previous round.

Abbott said after Saturday's win at the Ricoh Arena: "The next one is that little matter of Wednesday night. I think everyone is looking forward to that and we'll start to prepare for it in earnest on Monday morning.

"Nearly 1,000 fans have come and enjoyed themselves here and hopefully we'll have near a full house doing the same when Tottenham come to our place.

"I've said it before, a full Brunton Park cheering on their team makes it a test for any team and we certainly don't want to just turn up and give it to them.

"We want to see the same levels of determination and honesty and if we get them then we might just give Spurs a few scares along the way."
