Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson says his confidence is increasing and he is finding his form once again.
The 28-year-old made a series of errors earlier in the season and was dropped for the last England game under Steve McClaren's charge.
In the Carling Cup clash with Manchester City on Tuesday he kept a clean sheet, including a stunning save to deny Darius Vassell, as Spurs ran out 2-0 winners, and his performances are improving, signalling he may be pushing to win back his place under new England boss Fabio Capello.
"I was very pleased with how I played - my form is coming back," said Robinson. "I did have a dip in confidence, and it affected my performances a little bit.
"But my confidence is coming back to me now, and I think people can see from my performances that I'm getting back to my best."
Red card woeThe cup win at Eastlands earned Spurs a semi-final berth, but they were left reeling following Didier Zokora's red card for a tackle on Elano.
"I don't think the referee made a good decision. Didier is not a dirty player," said full-back Pascal Chimbonda.
Spurs have appealed and will learn on Thursday if the Football Association will overturn referee Steve Bennett's decision.
An FA statement confirmed: "Tottenham have submitted a claim for wrongful dismissal in relation to the sending-off of Didier Zokora for serious foul play against Manchester City in last night's Carling Cup tie."
Zokora would face a three-match ban if the card is upheld, leaving Spurs with more problems at the back.
