Peter Crouch lifts Tottenham spirits ahead of derby clash

TOTTENHAM Hotspur striker Peter Crouch has urged his team-mates to bounce back from their Wembley disappointment when they face Arsenal tomorrow.

Spurs were defeated by Portsmouth in the FA Cup semi-final and they are also four points behind Manchester City in the race for the final Champions League place.

"I was absolutely gutted to lose, but we have to pick ourselves up because we don't want our season to just fritter away," Crouch said.

"We have to make sure we're at it for the rest of the season to try to get fourth spot and we need to get up for it against Arsenal."
