Tottenham's Naughton eyes first team run at left-back


Bookmark and Share

Tottenham’s Kyle Naughton has ambitions of cementing his place as his side’s left-back after first choice following the injury to first-choice Benoit Assou-Ekotto that is set to keep him out for up to a month.



According to Goal, Naughton, who signed for the Lillywhites in 2009 only to spend periods out on loan at Middlesbrough, Leicester City and Norwich City. The former England Under-21 international impressed at Carrow Road in the Premier League last season, making 32 appearances in all competitions without scoring.


Now, despite his preference to play right-back, Naughton believes he is ready to take advantage of Assou Ekotto’s absence to finally make his mark in the Tottenham first team.


“I played at left-back a few times for Norwich last season and hopefully now I can carry on playing,” said Naughton. “It was great to get the three points (against Reading) and that the gaffer gave me a chance to show what I can do. Towards the end I was tiring a little and they got in behind us a little but the more games I play, hopefully the stronger I’ll get.”


Following their first victory under Andre Villas-Boas on Sunday at Reading, Spurs face Italian giants Lazio in their opening group match in the Europa League before welcoming QPR to White Hart Lane on Sunday for a London derby.

Hope this boy takes his chance and improves enough to keep Assou-Ekotto out. I can't get over that stupid blind, over the shoulder clearence against Arsenal which fell straight to Van Persie who then scored and thus the seasons downfall began. If Naughton isn't the answer, Vertongen plays there for Belgium and we've certainly got enough centre backs to cover that slot he moves back.
