Jamie: Lads showed character

Posted on 14 April 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Jamie Redknapp says the lads showed real character to comeback and secure a point against Manchester City on Monday.

Following the disappointing defeat and performance at Everton on Good Friday we found ourselves 1-0 down against City at half-time having lost Stephen Carr through injury.

However, Jermain Defoe struck early in the second half and we deserved to win from there - Robbie Keane had a goal disallowed, Jermain had a penalty claim waved away and Jamie went close with the last shot of the game. Gus Poyet also hit the woodwork before Jermain's goal.

"I've had better Easters, that's for sure," said skipper Jamie. "The Everton game was tough, we didn't play as well as we would have liked and probably got what we deserved.

"I thought the effort was there against City, we had a go and we were unlucky not to get the three points.

"We showed character in that second half. We were up against it in the first half, didn't play badly but they scored and that put us on the back foot.

"The fans got a little restless, we started to panic a bit but I thought second half we put in a lot of effort, battled hard and with a little luck we could have had the three points."

"At least we stemmed the tide of defeats and now we can look forward to Bolton on Saturday."
