Spurs manager Harry Redknapp conceded that he was frustrated with the 1-1 home draw over the weekend while claiming that a point was better than nothing. Spurs couldn’t convert their many chances in order to add to Luka Modric’s 53rd minute strike and ultimately had to settle for the result.
“We’ve certainly lost games like that before,” said Harry.
“You press and press and then give a sucker-punch goal away in the last five minutes and end up coming away with nothing.
“There are times you are not going to win, you go home and a point’s a point.
In a week when title talk started to dominate, Harry went on to say that our focus is on Champions League qualification and he added that we may have lost games like this in the past.
“Sometimes you keep pushing and leave it open at the back. We’ve all walked away from games like that where we’ve ended up getting beaten 2-1 and that wouldn’t have been ideal,”.
“It’s only one game, one draw doesn’t suddenly mean we’re not going to do this or not going to do that. We’ve been on a great run and we still are, one defeat in 19 games.
“We’re still right up there, Champions League qualification is a real possibility for us and that’s what we’ve got to aim to do.”
Next up is Manchester City away this weekend.
