GUIDE TO THE ACTION
Apologies to anyone who encountered technical problems this afternoon...
1min: Postiga has the first effort of the game, a 25-yard shot that sailed well wide.
3mins: Dawson glancing header from Reid's inswinging free-kick, not enough power to trouble Baia.
7mins: SAVE. Lisandro stood up lovely cross to far post attacked by McCarthy, header destined for top corner before Robinson took off at full stretch and tipped over.
9mins: SAVE. Defoe robbed Costa 30 yards out, ran towards goal, slipped last man Leandro only for Baia to save one-on-one with right foot.
10mins: Carrick collected half-cleared corner, crossed and Mido fashioned overhead kick that flashed two yards wide.
11mins: CLOSE. Jorghino's cross fell behind McCarthy but he managed to control on chest and scissor kick inches wide with Robinson scrambling.
14mins: Carrick fine defence-splitting pass to release Routledge, took shot early but drilled wide from 20 yards.
20mins: Slick one-touch passing move from Porto ended with McCarthy in space on right corner of box, stepped inside Edman but Dawson over to block shot.
23mins: Reid onto Tainio's pass down left, cut into box, attempted pass to Defoe cut out but interception flashed just wide of far post.
35mins: CLOSE. Lovely move involving Defoe, Carrick and Tainio who threaded Reid through wide left, low cross inches away from a Defoe tap in.
40mins: McCarthy got onto long pass between Dawson and Stalteri, more than hint of handball, smashed shot into upper tier of Paxton Road.
42mins: SAVE. Jorghino on the overlap down right wing, low cross found McCarthy in box, Robinson out like a flash to block with legs.
Half-time: Spurs 0, Porto 0
