Sport by Press Association September 25, 2018, 3:01 pm FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Sport newsletter Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will not let his side playing their Carabao Cup game against Watford in Milton Keynes become a possible excuse for failure. Spurs will play the third-round clash at the home of League Two side MK Dons on Wednesday night as their new stadium is not finished and Wembley is not ready to host a football match after the Anthony Joshua fight at the weekend. They opted to play the game 50 miles up the M1 rather than reverse the fixture, which Watford had stated as their preference. Playing at a stadium which is not theirs is nothing new to Pochettino’s side and he will not let it become a reason to under-perform. “If there is one thing I didn’t want it is to give reason to the players to say, ‘If we don’t win it’s because of Milton Keynes, it’s because we don’t play … [Read more...] about Pochettino wants his players to earn their spurs – wherever they play

In the first play, Blind Date, characters Jonathan and Wendy, are on a first date yet are unconvinced as the date goes on. Bride to Be sees Angela, a bride with severe last-minute jitters, being persuaded by her brother Toby amid a barrage of bad omens. After the interval, the Players will set the scene of a local village hall where the dress rehearsal for a very British costume show is in … [Read more...] about The Players are playing on Monday and Tuesday!
