Tottenham star reveals major transformation deciding factor for ending silverware drought
Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks has said that the club’s transformation of form at Wembley will help in trying to secure a trophy at the end of the season.
Spurs are in temporary residence at the national stadium as they wait for their new ground to be built, having departed White Hart Lane in its original form at the end of last season.
They had used Wembley as a base for their European campaign last season, which ended disappointingly with a Europa League exit to Gent, and their form at home was just as patchy during the start of the current campaign.
They failed to win any of their three opening league games at home, giving birth what supported dubbed the “Wembley hoodoo”, but they have turned their form in front of their own fans around, and Winks feels it could be a decisive factor come the end of the season, as they look to end a 10 year drought for major silverware.
He told the London Evening Standard: “Everyone has a clear mind about what we want to do this season — win a trophy.
“We are coming to terms with how to play at Wembley. We’ve got a lot of experience here now, the players have adapted, we are getting good results and we hope it can continue.
“Whenever you change stadiums there will always be a time where you are adjusting, and that goes for the fans as well. But we are used to getting good results here now.”
Winks had been a regular for Spurs at the start of the season, with 23 appearances across all competitions, but an ankle injury has limited his game time in recent weeks, having missed out on the last seven games.
The club’s next game sees them take on League One Rochdale away on Sunday, with the Lilywhites knowing that victory would put them just three games away from securing some silverware.
