Spurs’ head coach Tim Sherwood expressed his disappointment over Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Hull but also claimed that the point earned could be a vital one for both sides at the end of the season. Paulinho’s second half effort cancelled out Shane Long’s first goal for his new club and with Everton winning, we now drop to sixth.
“We’re disappointed in the dressing room because we thought we’d come here and win the game,” said Sherwood after the match.
“I said before the game that every team will have their needs and we can’t allow anyone else’s to be bigger than ours. We wanted maximum points and that’s what we tried to get.”
Tim also praised our opponents who have been strong at home for much of this campaign.
“You have to give credit to Hull as well. They are fighting for their lives. They have spirit, can cause problems and they’ve beaten some good teams here,” he added.
“I didn’t think we were ever going to lose this game, and it could be an important point at the end of the season.”
With Liverpool drawing at West Brom, we remain just three points off fourth place but this weekend’s home game with Everton is starting to look like a must win if we are to stay on course for the Champions League lots.
