Reserve reaction

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).

Chris Hughton had few complaints after his reserve side’s 3-0 victory against Wimbledon on Tuesday night.

Two goals in a minute just after the break from Willem Korsten and Ian Hillier paved the way for an impressive second half performance capped when Steffen Iversen and Les Ferdinand returned from injury for 20 minutes each as substitutes.

Ferdindand added the icing on the cake with the third goal in injury time.

Boss Chris reflected: "Wimbledon are always tough, they play a certain way and you have to be prepared for it but we deserved to win by that scoreline and could have had more.

"The big plusses were that we didn’t concede, Ian Walker did well for me again and Les Ferdinand and Steffen Iversen coming on, which is a big boost for Saturday. It was nice for Les to score as well and that will lift him further.

"I thought Ian Hillier did ever so well and when you play the shape we are playing it is always nice to see one wing-back cross for other to score.

"The youngsters also did well, Destin Makumbu at the back and John Jackson. It was a tricky surface, very heavy and I would now like to see them on a better surface."

A trip to Watford is next in the FA Premier Reserve League next Wednesday, February 21.
