Harry Redknapp conceded after Saturday's draw against Wolves that sometimes you have to accept a point rather than end up with nothing.
The manager and team were naturally disappointed not to grab the win against Mick McCarthy's men after it finished 1-1 at White Hart Lane.
Having fallen behind in the first half, Luka Modric's equaliser on 51 minutes sparked our best spell in the match.
It looked then that we'd go on to pick up the three points but it wasn't to be on this occasion as Wolves became only the third team to take points off us at the Lane this season.
"We've certainly lost games like that before," reflected Harry.
"You press and press and then give a sucker-punch goal away in the last five minutes and end up coming away with nothing.
"There are times you are not going to win, you go home and a point’s a point.
"We wanted three and we all get disappointed when we don’t, but Wolves weren’t here just to roll over and lose.
"Sometimes you keep pushing and leave it open at the back. We've all walked away from games like that where we've ended up getting beaten 2-1 and that wouldn't have been ideal.
"It’s only one game, one draw doesn’t suddenly mean we’re not going to do this or not going to do that. We’ve been on a great run and we still are, one defeat in 19 games.
"We’re still right up there, Champions League qualification is a real possibility for us and that’s what we’ve got to aim to do."
