London - Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Michel Vorm received a vote of confidence on Tuesday from manager Mauricio Pochettino, who said he didn't intend to drop him for Wednesday's League Cup semi-final second leg tie.
Pochettino's men bowed out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 defeat by Leicester City at White Hart Lane on Saturday, with Vorm's error deep into stoppage-time gifting the visitors the winning goal when a scuffed shot from Jeffrey Schlupp evaded his grasp.

Now London club Spurs will head north to face third-tier Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Wednesday carrying a slender 1-0 lead from the first leg of the semi-final.
Belgian keeper Vorm has been Pochettino's preferred option between the posts in cup competitions this season and the Argentinian boss said Tuesday he saw no reason to bring in France captain Hugo Lloris, the Spurs number one, for Wednesday's match.
"This is football," said Pochettino. "He made a mistake. Every player can make a mistake, we have full confidence in him and must give him support.
"He made two big saves against Leicester. His attitude is fantastic and nothing has changed, in one action he conceded a goal."
Pochettino added: "I think it should be normal to play Michel. All games are important, and (overall he) had a good performance (against Leicester)."
