'Benty' reacts on Spurs TVO

Darren Bent has spoken to Spurs TV Online following his match-winning performance against Newcastle at The Lane on Sunday.

The striker took his goal tally for the season to 16, but chose to focus on what was another important win for Harry Redknapp's side.

It takes us to within a point of West Ham, the side currently occupying the spot that will secure European football for next season.

And we managed to grab the three points against a team equally needing the win due to factors at the other end of the table - a feat that Darren praises in this exclusive interview.

He says: "I was delighted to get another goal but the most important thing was that the team won and played well, and I thought we did that.

"Considering Newcastle are scrapping for their lives, I thought we played really well when a lot of teams may have crumbled.

"I remember last season when they were in a similar situation and beat us 4-1, so we were not going to let that happen again.

"We just set our stall out early, managed to get the goal quite early, and then just kicked on from there.

"When you look at where we are in the table at the moment, if our start had have been a fraction better, we may have been right up there.

"Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be, but we know what we need to do now and seventh spot is where we want to be."
