Point taken

Posted on 25 August 2005  - 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).

Martin Jol declared himself satisfied with a point after the 0-0 draw against Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday night.


However, the Head Coach added that he wasn't particularly happy with the performance after a gritty Premiership encounter.


Chances were few and far between at both ends as the home side had the better of it in terms of possession.


The temperature of the game rose in the second half and Lucas Neill was sent off for a second yellow card, but the deadlock simply wasn't going to be broken.


Martin reflected: "Blackburn were better than us so we can be satisfied with a point.


"In the first half we didn't play as well as we've played recently, certainly not as well as we played on Saturday.


"But there were some positives as well. We still haven't conceded a goal and maybe last season we might have had a problem - if we didn't score we might have lost a game like this.


"We didn't play well enough to win this game and Blackburn were better. They were aggressive but I have no complaints about that, they do everything to win and I can appreciate that.
