Juande Ramos was satisfied with a point after a tough encounter against Everton on Wednesday night.

Chances were few and far between in the goalless draw at Goodison Park. Everton certainly had the better of those created and Radek Cerny was forced to make the only two saves of note to twice deny Andy Johnson.

Much credit has to go to our defensive display with centre-back pairing Jonathan Woodgate and Tom Huddlestone particularly outstanding, Woodgate on his debut for us having only signed on Monday.

"It was a fairly balanced match overall, both teams came out to play and tried to win," reflected Head Coach Juande at Goodison Park.

"I would say that the first half was Everton's but the second half certainly went our way and overall, a draw was a fair result," he added, before giving the seal of approval to Woodgate's debut.

"As you know it was his first match for us and he played very well. It's fair to say he doesn't know his new team-mates too well but he is a player with a great deal of experience. He is a player who can bring great benefits to Tottenham.

"I hope we have no problems with his fitness. There are a lot of matches in our schedule at the moment but he's an experienced player and should he feel he needs a rest I hope he will let us know and we'll give him the rest or extra training he needs."
