Tottenham Focus – Spurs character summed up in late Stoke victory

Tottenham took a vital three points against a combative Stoke side to move fourth and put the pressure on rivals Arsenal when they take on FA Cup winners Wigan on Tuesday. Anything other than a win against the Latics – fighting for their Premier League lives – will hand the Champions League advantage to Spurs going into the final game of the season.

Spurs scored their winner through Emmanuel Adebayor in the 83rd minute in a season which has perhaps been characterized by late goals. At the start of the season the problem was all about late goals conceded. Newcastle, West Bromwich Albion and Norwich were amongst the teams that scored late in matches to cost Spurs points. Perhaps the problem crystallized itself at Goodison Park in December. Two goals by Everton in injury time turned three points for Spurs into three points for The Toffees.
