Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale is aiming to put league form to one side ahead of Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final tie against Bolton.

A recent run of three successive league defeats, starting with Arsenal's 5-2 thrashing at the Emirates Stadium, has seen Spurs' ten-point gap over their arch-rivals cut to just a single point.

But Bale feels a trip to Wembley would be a great way for his team to get back on track following their poor run of form.

The Wales international said: "It's a massive game for us. We know our league form hasn't been great of late, but the FA Cup is a different competition and, being at home, we've got a great chance to get to the semi-finals.

Massive trophy

"We know it's not going to be an easy game. It's going to be hard work - it's a cup tie. We'll just go out there, give it 100%, play our best football and hopefully we can be in the semi-final."

Bolton will be Tottenham's first Premier League opponent in this year's competition, having previously faced lower league opposition in Cheltenham, Watford and Stevenage, but Bale does not think it has been easy.

The 22-year-old continued: "The teams we've come up against have made it difficult for us. We've got through on merit at the end of the day, and to play Bolton will be a difficult test, and one we're ready for.

"Any silverware is important and the FA Cup is a massive trophy in England and something we want to do well in."
