Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas was honest about the side’s performance as we conceded another late goal for a second successive 1-1 home draw. After a busy week of transfer activity, new signing Moussa Dembele grabbed the lead on 68 minutes before a Robert Snodgrass effort ensured that the points were shared.
“This was a different game, we didn’t play as well as last week,” said Villas-Boas after the match.
“It’s a pity because we fought hard in the second half, mainly because the first half was poor and we looked a little sloppy in our passing.”
Andre also hinted at a lack of concentration as we failed to hold on to the lead.
“We got the goal but again, we conceded in the last minutes so we have to improve on this sharpness, this reaction, this concentration,” he added.
“We have to assume responsibility for what is happening, which is disappointing, but everybody inside the dressing room feels if we get the win that we need, it will be the boost we need to take this through.”
At least it was an improvement on last season’s 2-1 defeat to the same opposition but we’ll have to wait two weeks now until the Reading game on 16th before we can resume the search for our first league win.
