One game at a time for 'Bents'

David Bentley admits he is enjoying his football again after playing a starring role in last night's FA Cup Fourth Round Replay win at Leeds.

The midfielder made a goalscoring return to the side for last week's Premier League win over Fulham - only his second league start of the season - and has impressed in each game since.

At Elland Road, he was the provider for two of Jermain Defoe's three goals in our 3-1 victory over the League One side.

With regular right-winger Aaron Lennon out injured, ‘Bents' is certainly grabbing the chance to finally establish himself in the side with both hands.

But he is not getting carried away, saying: "I got back in the team the last week and I've just been looking to perform.

"It's been a difficult time since I came here and you can't help that when the team have been doing so well without you.

"I just look forward to every game I play now and don't take it for granted. I go out there and enjoy myself.

"I just want to stay in the team and play as many games as I can. I am taking it game-by-game at the minute because you never know in football.

"My time at Spurs has been hard but hopefully I can start enjoying it now."
