Burnley's Eagles desperate to beat Spurs: Gazza my hero

Burnley winger Chris Eagles is desperate to make an impact against Carling Cup semifinal opponents Tottenham tonight.

It will be a special occasion for midfielder Eagles who was a season-ticket holder at Tottenham as a youngster.

He will have his own special fan club at the match after dishing out 20 tickets to close family and friends.

Eagles, who arrived at Turf Moor from Manchester United in the summer, admitted: "It would be up there with the best if I could score at White Hart Lane.

"Going there is a big thing for me after watching the likes of Jurgen Klinsmann and Paul Gascoigne at Spurs when I was a kid. They had a strong team."
