On 90 minutes last night the wheels were firmly coming off from Spurs season and Rafael van der Vaart’s injury time equaliser was met with a greater sense of relief than euphoria.
We have now surrendered third place for the time being but as Harry said after the game, the point could yet prove vital.
“Stoke are always a threat on set-plays and I said we had to be careful, try not to give away free-kicks, but we did and paid the penalty,” Harry said.
“In the end we were thankful for Rafa’s goal.
“With four minutes to go it’s a good point, with 90 to go it’s a bad point. We’d have taken a point with four minutes to go, for sure.
“It might be a vital point at the end of the season, it might just come in handy.”
It’s got to that stage where you’re starting to look at results below you and the best news of the night came with Chelsea’s defeat at Manchester City. However, a run of results along the lines of that which we achieved in September will help us forget this depressing period of the season.
“We need to go on a little run ourselves now, we need to pick ourselves up quickly and pick up a few positive results, “Harry added.
It may yet prove to be a vital point but the result of Saturday’s game at Stamford Bridge could be absolutely crucial.
