Boa Morte on the Tottenham game.

Boa Morte on the Tottenham game.

The Cottagers were poor on their travels last season but stunned Newcastle 2-1 at St James' Park last Saturday.

Spurs have begun the season poorly and Boa Morte, although he has a lot of respect for them, believes Fulham can take three points from White Hart Lane.

'So far we've had a good start to the season and hopefully we can stay in the top ten - it's a long season but we're constantly looking forward,' Boa Morte told Fulham's official website.

'We know it's going to be a tough game against Tottenham on Sunday but we've won our last two games so we're full of confidence.

'We'll do everything we can to get another good result. It's a London derby and we'll be up for it.

Wayne Routledge will also miss the Tottenham game under the terms of his year-long loan agreement, but the young winger has already made an impression on his new team-mates.

Collins John believes that Fulham boss Chris Coleman was clever to bring Routledge in, and backed the 21-year-old to dazzle this season.

'I've known Wayne for a long time and I think he'll be a sensation this year with his pace and trickery,' said John.

'He was involved in both goals against Newcastle and I think the manager did a good job bringing him to Fulham. I'm very happy he's here.'

Routledge was excellent in our win against Newcastle at the weekend and Spurs will regret loaning him out to us without a claw back clause now that Lennon is out for 6 weeks, so well done the Fulham board for getting such a good loan deal out of the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

I agree Cravens.. The spurs management team can be real dumb as well as amazingly clever. They sell Carrick for 18.6 MILLION which is a clever thing cos we now have Zokora.. then give away a super quality right/left midfielder with no clause and yes... the dumb stupid balance is restored. Looking forward to sunday.

Must just add, you get your moneys worth from Browny too... he's not the greatest technically gifted player but his work rate throughout the game is most excellent... Message to all cottagers .. i dont know too much bout Steed, where you happy to see him go ?

routledge will be exellent for you. Im really sad for Jimmy Bullard one of my favourate players outside spurs. I feel your midfield of Routledge diouf brown(for bullard) boa morte is pretty strong and will be to strong for many this season if kept together.

I agree about Michael Brown, he is not the most inteleigent player in the prem but he is a player that when on the pitch you know that he is going to give 110%.

With Rouledge not allowed to play due to the terms of his loan deal, Boa morte a doubt and Bullard out we will be short on our usual strong squad for Tottenham, (mind you Spurs have their injuries also) the midfield could stuggle, although Brown will want to show Spurs what they are missing.

A top 10 finish is certainly within your capabilities.
