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).

West Brom boss Bryan Robson hailed his side's character after they claimed a point at the Lane on Wednesday night.


Zoltan Gera pounced to give West Brom a 24th-minute lead but Robbie Keane rifled home the equaliser after the interval to seal a 1-1 draw which lifts struggling Albion out of the Barclays Premiership's bottom three.


Robson said: "I'm really pleased with our first-half performance. I think we played some excellent football. We didn't show Spurs any fear and we could have been a couple up at half-time.


"We went for Spurs and put them on the back foot. We knew that Tottenham have very good players and would come back at us when we went ahead - and that's exactly what they did.


"When Mido came on to give them three up front it caused a few problems. But we switched it around and I think we coped well. In fact, I felt we created the better chances later in the second half.


"To get the point when the pressure is on is good - we dug in and competed really well. If someone had said before the game we'd come to white Hart Lane, put in a performance like that and get a draw I'd have been very happy."
