Form still good - Kevin

Kevin Bond insists the defeat at Blackburn shouldn't overshadow our fine form of late.

Saturday's late, late loss at Ewood Park was our first reverse in seven Premier League matches and we've now lost just two of our last 10 in the league.

In fact, we travelled to Ewood Park having won four of our last five games and moved to within three points of West Ham in seventh.

That's changed again now as the Hammers - who we play in a huge game at the Lane on Saturday - beat Sunderland to move six points clear in seventh.

Further frustrating everyone was that rivals for seventh spot - Wigan, Fulham and Manchester City - all lost at the weekend.

"Yes, that made it worse as it was a missed opportunity," reasoned assistant boss Kevin back at Spurs Lodge. "But there is nothing we can do about it now.

"There is no point dwelling on that result now. It was a real kick in the teeth for us but now we have to go on another run and we're playing well, we shouldn't lose sight of that fact."

Kevin agreed with Harry Redknapp's assessment that a second goal at Ewood Park would have seen us over the finish line.

"We had them on the ropes and we didn't kill them off," he said. "You always know you'll need that second goal and we didn't get it. We had enough of the ball and dominated the game but never got that second goal and paid for it.

"It's disappointing but overall our form is good and we continued that form on Saturday. Now we have to move on and put it right against West Ham."
