Young Boys fullback Sutter: Tottenham have everything to lose

Young Boys fullback Scott Sutter is excited about playing at White Hart Lane against boyhood idols Tottenham tonight.

Sutter will fulfil a boyhood dream when he runs out at White Hart Lane - although it will be against, rather than for, the team he grew up supporting.

But it will not be the first time the 24-year-old from Enfield has taken to the field there, having done so when he and his father were season-ticket holders in the 1990s.

Describing coming back to White Hart Lane as a player as "a special feeling", Sutter said: "I remember waiting behind the gates for autographs from players when I was there with my dad and I snuck into the stadium and got a piece of grass and kept it home for about three weeks."

Asked if he planned to bring some more turf back to Bern with him, Sutter added: "We'll see how the game goes first - maybe the ball."

Indeed, Sutter will have no qualms knocking Spurs out of Europe's premier club competition, having helped his side build a 3-2 first-leg lead last week.

He acknowledges they remain outsiders in the tie having squandered most of their 3-0 lead in the first leg, but said: "I don't think it's gone. I think everything's still open in the game.

"I think they've got more pressure than us first of all.

"We've got nothing to lose.

"They've got everything to lose.

"If we can get through the first 20-25 minutes without conceding a goal then I think we've got a fairly good chance."
