Reid on penalty fortune

Posted on 13 April 2003  - 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).

Leeds boss Peter Reid conceded that his team 'got away with one' when Simon Davies appeared to be felled in the penalty area in the final seconds of the 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The Welshman broke clear and Lucas Radebe came across to make a challenge that could have resulted in the second penalty of the day. Mark Viduka had, 15 minutes before, levelled the scores from the spot.

"The biggest thing I take out of the game is the way we kept on going," said Reid.

"We got a break with the penalty, and it looked like one, but at the other end I think we got away with one."

Meanwhile, Reid was not too happy with his side's defending for the two Spurs goals scored by Teddy Sheringham and Robbie Keane.

"From our point of view the goals were poor," he added.

"There was a flick-on from a corner to the back stick, which is about basic defending.


"Then for the second, which is a great goal for Tottenham, our tackling left a lot to be desired.

"When you are facing a player like Robbie Keane you've got to stay on your feet, but we paid the penalty.

"We've just got to stop conceding daft goals. They were terrible goals to give away.

"With the players we've got up front we are always likely to score, but defensively we have got to tighten up."
