Hazard posts Twitter message ahead of Tottenham clash v Gent

By Harvey Byrne

Tottenham great Micky Hazard has issued his support to the team ahead of their Thursday evening clash against Gent.

The north London giants are gearing up to face the Belgian side at Wembley in a match that they will be looking to turnaround a 1-0 scoreline in.

Spurs are strong favourites to win the clash at the iconic English ground against Gent, who are sat in eighth in Belgium’s top flight.

However, after last week those associated with Tottenham will be taking no chances and Hazard hailed the match on his personal Twitter account as a must-win game.

Tottenham are going into the European clash on the back of a stunning 3-0 win against Fulham on Sunday in the FA Cup.

They will be hoping for a similar scoreline once again on Thursday as they aim to progress in Europe.

However, Mauricio Pochettino named a very strong side on Sunday and will be expected to do so once more against Stoke this weekend, meaning he may rest a few at Wembley.

But, fans will still be expecting any squad players to contribute against a Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s team to see them qualify alongside Manchester United.
