Tottenham intent on grasping top-four spot - Dawson

Tottenham are determined to move back into the top four after dropping out over the weekend.

Spurs find themselves fifth on the Premier League table following North London rival Arsenal's last-gasp 3-1 win over Norwich City on Saturday but skipper Michael Dawson says there is full focus at White Hart Lane to gain a spot in the Champions League for next season.

"We're not thinking of that," Dawson told Sky Sports News about again relinquishing a top-four position late in the season to Arsenal.

"As players you can't. Who knows what will happen on 19th May? Hopefully it will be a good day and we're celebrating. There's a lot of hard work to go in from ourselves and also the other teams to get there.

"Arsenal have gone above us and we're in fifth. The games come thick and fast and, with us not playing at certain times with the way they've fallen, we've just got to concentrate on what we do.

"That's all we can affect and, with six games to go, we hope to pick as many points up as possible to get us back in the top four."
