Midfielder hopes win over Bolton will kick-start Spurs' season

Luka Modric admits he can play better, but feels there are no problems with morale in the Tottenham Hotspur squad. Croatia schemer Modric has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League this season following his move from Dinamo Zagreb. He has been unable to lift Spurs off the foot of the table, with the team enduring their worst start to a campaign in the club's history. However, Modric is trying to stay upbeat and believes victory over Bolton Wanderers this weekend could kick-start Spurs' campaign.

Turning point

"The mood in the squad is okay, but everyone knows what the situation is and nobody expected to be in this position," Modric told the club's official website. "The next league game against Bolton could be the turning point in our season if we win because things will look so much better. "We believe in ourselves and know we can win games because we have enough quality to do so, even though we haven't shown it yet. "It's difficult to assess my own performances at the moment. I know I can play better, but I think we all can. "It's not about individuals. If we play better as a team, then we can expect better days and better results." Before facing Bolton, Spurs meet Udinese in the Uefa Cup on Thursday and Modric feels the match could play to the team's strengths. He added: "The Uefa Cup is also an important competition for us and Udinese are a good team, so it will be a difficult game. "European games are different to league games because we may get more time on the ball and that could give us an opportunity to express ourselves."
