Watford's Yeates: Hard to make it at Tottenham

Watford midfielder Mark Yeates is looking forward to facing former club Tottenham.

The two teams meet tonight in the FA Cup.

"Tottenham was a big part of my life. A lot of my growing up was done in London when I was at the club, so I've got a lot of fond memories. I've still got a lot of pals there," Yeates told the Telegraph.

"Martin Jol was the manager when I left in 2007. I had a good relationship with him, he gave me a few run-outs, but Spurs are such a big club and at the time in every transfer window they were bringing in three or four new players. It was hard for the likes of myself, Dean Marney and Johnnie Jackson, we were on the fringes. Eventually we all had to move on but there are no hard feelings."
