Tottenham skipper Michael Dawson says they need the home fans right behind them for their clash with Manchester City.

The reigning champions have hit form with three-successive wins in the Premier League and an FA Cup semi-final victory over Chelsea.

"There is no better place than White Hart Lane when it's rocking and that support can make such a difference," Dawson told the Spurs website.

"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."
