The Spurs captain thinks the supporters will have a big part to play as the side battles for Champions League football next season.
Tottenham skipper Michael Dawson has called on fans of the club to play their part at White Hart Lane when the side take on Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
Dawson expects morale to be high at City following a good run of form that has seen them beat rivals Manchester United and Wigan in the league, as well as booking their place in the FA Cup final with victory over Chelsea at the weekend.
With Spurs needing a win against the Citizens to boost their chances of finishing in the top four, the captain believes the home supporters can help the side get all three points.
“There is no better place than White Hart Lane when it’s rocking and that support can make such a difference,” the defender was quoted on Sky Sports.
“When the players are performing and the fans are behind us, they are our 12th man, just like they were recently against Arsenal. We’d all love a repeat of that.”
In the match Dawson is referring to Spurs came away 2-1 victors against their North London rivals and a repeat performance would certainly bolster Tottenham’s chances of achieving a Champions League spot.
Dawson and his side have a tough run-in as they head towards the crunch this season, with away matches at relegation candidates Wigan and Stoke, as well as top-four challengers Chelsea – coupled with difficult home ties with Southampton and Sunderland.
