Dawson desperate for Spurs to reach Champions League group stage

Tottenham defender Michael Dawson is desperate for the club to reach the group stage of the Champions League.

Spurs were yesterday handed the easiest possible route to the competition proper when they drew Young Boys in the play-off round.

Harry Redknapp's men will face the Swiss side in a two-leg tie starting in Berne a week on Tuesday and England defender Dawson is desperate to progress.

"It means everything,' said Dawson.

"We're two games away from the group stages and that's what it's all about now.

"Two massive games against Young Boys and it's exciting times. But we've got to make sure we win and get into the group stages."
