Match Preview

King: We can turn it around Ledley King admits Tottenham's confidence has dipped after their recent poor run, but he is adamant the club can still qualify for next year's Champions League. Tottenham host Blackburn at White Hart Lane on Sunday looking to arrest an alarming run of one win in their last nine Barclays Premier League matches. Despite keeping up with pace-setters Manchester United and Manchester City for the first half of the season, Spurs are now in real danger of missing out on the Champions League. The Londoners could be six points behind Newcastle by the time they take on Steve Kean's men and even if they finish in fourth, they will miss out on qualification if Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in next month's European Cup final in Germany. On the pitch Spurs look like a pale imitation of the team that tore apart most of the teams in the division earlier this season, but King insists they can pick themselves up and win all four of their remaining games. "We can turn it around. Of course we can," King told Spurs TV Online. "We still have four winnable games to play and if we perform to our capabilities then we can win those games. "Last week's (1-0) defeat at QPR was disappointing for us. "I felt we had a lot of the ball and didn't create too many chances but we just didn't get the break. "That game was tough to take, but we want to put a few things right against Blackburn and get the points on Sunday." Redknapp has had to endure a difficult week, with Spurs defender Vedran Corluka - now on loan at Bayer Leverkusen - claiming that the manager's failure to rotate his squad is likely to cost them a place in the top four. Redknapp also had to deal with questions about a reported bust-up with striker Emmanuel Adebayor - something he vehemently denies took place. King is at a loss to explain why he and his team-mates have failed to deliver recently and concedes confidence has dropped because of the club's form. "Confidence is important in football and it is a bit low at the moment," the defender added. "It's a difficult one to explain. We have been scratching our heads ourselves. "A lot of the performances haven't been too bad. We've had the odd one but all in all there have not been too many games where we haven't dominated. "We have just been lacking a bit in scoring goals at the moment, but we can tighten up at the back too. It's related to the whole team." Rovers' relegation rivals - Wigan, Bolton, Aston Villa and QPR - will all have played before Blackburn take to the field in north London, and boss Steve Kean hopes that will play in to their hands. He said: "It's a big weekend, and we will know the outcome of a lot of games before we play. "Things could be sitting really good for us, it could be much the same or a little bit tougher. "I will be at Wigan because we have got that game coming up next week and I want to have a look at them." Ryan Nelsen, a one-time Blackburn stalwart and club captain, could line up against Kean's men for Spurs - something the Rovers boss admits will feel strange. "He was amazing when he was here for us, a true leader," he said. "It might be a weird sensation for him playing against us, considering how many games he did play for us. "He was a good character, a committed professional and a winner in everything he did." Blackburn's Montenegro international midfielder Simon Vukcevic has recovered from a virus to give Kean virtually a full squad to take to Tottenham. Jason Lowe has shaken off a knee problem so only Grant Hanley, who has an ankle ligament injury, is missing.
