It’s been many years since Spurs had won at the Reebok and although that ‘hoodoo’ had to be addressed at some point, it was always a worry whether it was going to be a factor.
The end product however was arguably our best result of the season, and although Bolton are in the bottom three, their form has been decent of late and this match could easily have derailed thoughts of a final push to the top four placings.
“I thought we played ever so well in the first half, came in 1-0 up and really should have been two or three up,” said Harry Redknapp after the match.
“Credit to Bolton, they came out in the second half and were much sharper and got about us more.
“They got a goal back and for that 10, 12, 15-minute spell, you could see them getting right back into it.”
After the equaliser from Nigel Reo-Coker, Bolton looked as if they may steal the points but it was a relief to see the team capture some of the form that has eluded them in the past few weeks.
“At 1-1, they looked the team that might go on and win it, from us dominating the first 45. It looked like being a difficult last half-hour,” Harry added.
“But we then showed tremendous ability on the break and scored some great goals.
“We can hit teams on the break and we did that. We’ve real pace in Bale, Lennon and Adebayor and we finished them off.”
The win keeps us in fourth and we are now just one point away from third as we get ready to travel to Villa Park at the weekend.
