Goal means a lot - Crouchy

Peter Crouch spoke of his delight after opening his Spurs account at White Hart Lane.

'Crouchy' made it two goals in a week with his first for the Club at the Lane and first for us in the Barclays Premier League in the 2-1 win against Birmingham City on Saturday.

The striker made a huge impression off the bench as we maintained our 100 per cent winning start to the campaign after four matches.

In the space of a little over 10 minutes, Crouchy forced a fine save out of Joe Hart, hit the crossbar and then saw a third header cleared off the line.

He finally broke the deadlock after 72 minutes with a looping header from Tom Huddlestone's free-kick but his joy was short-lived as the Blues responded just three minutes later to make it 1-1.

Thankfully, Aaron Lennon was on hand to work his magic in the last seconds of added time to secure maximum points and ensure Crouchy would have happy memories of his first league goal for us on a weekend where he was called back into the England squad.

"I was really pleased to score my first goal at White Hart Lane, it means a lot, but obviously a couple of minutes later and it all came crashing down because they equalised," he said.

"That was disappointing but I always felt confident that we would win the game. We deserved it and it was a great winner from Aaron right at the end.

"Sometimes you have to dig in to win games and that was one of those games.

"I felt confident, I felt sharp, I got on the end of a few crosses and one was saved, one hit the crossbar, another was cleared off the line and finally the goal came. As long as I kept getting in there, I was confident that I would get one and hopefully that's the first of many to come."
