Gomes aims to go from gaffe-maker to record breaker as Spurs aim for Europe

06 May 2009 11:28
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, a figure of fun earleir this season, is on the verge of rewriting the club's history books.

Gomes has kept six consecutive clean sheets at home and needs two more shut-outs to break the current club record - set by Ray Clemence during the 1986-87 campaign.

Keeping the faith: Heurelho Gomes has managed to win over the majority of Spurs fans after a shaky start.

Spurs' record of just 11 home goals conceded in a season, set in 1920, will also be broken if they do not concede more than one goal in the White Hart Lane finale against Manchester City on May 16.

It is a remarkable turnaround for Gomes, who was initially replaced by Carlo Cudicini after Harry Redknapp arrived in November but has fought back to help Spurs go from relegation candidates to European hopefuls.

'I think we can do it,' said the Brazilian. 'When I play I don't so much look for such things, only to win the games. Now we have a chance to make history it is amazing.
