Spurs hero Dawson shrugs off praise

Tottenham defender Michael Dawson has shrugged off the plaudits won in recent weeks.

Told that everyone else had been singing his praises instead, Dawson shrugged.

"I don't really like talking about my own game, no," he told the club's website. "I just like to keep doing what I'm doing and let everyone else do the talking.

"I try to keep things on the level and not get too carried away when things are going well, because it can all change so quickly. I'll concentrate on my form and just try to continue doing what I'm doing.

"When you are in a winning team it makes it that little easier. Everyone is doing well at the moment and we've had some goods results, two wins on the trot after Wolves and good points at Everton and Villa before that, plus Wigan not too long ago.

"Things are going well but we have to continue that in two tough games over Christmas."
