Sebastien Bassong insists every point is vital as we scrap it out for a place in the top four of the Premier League.
And that’s why the defender described Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Newcastle as ‘a good point’ after Aaron Lennon’s late, late equaliser at St James Park.
Seb played his part against his former club – he joined us in August, 2009 after a season at the Toon – after entering the action in a left-back role for the injured Gareth Bale after just 11 minutes.
The point kept us fifth and in touch at the top end of the table.
“The goal came at a good time because we needed at least a draw,” reflected Seb back at Spurs Lodge. “It was a good point and we gained a point because we could have lost the game.
“The crowd is always amazing and it was an exciting match. I thought we played well and we didn’t lose, that was the most important thing.
“When we’re in our position and fighting for a place in the top four, we have to do that.
"If we go 1-0 down we have to do everything to get a draw or to win. Every point is vital. If you lose 1-0 or 2-0 at the end it’s not really any different.
“Before the game we hoped to win because if we want to make it into the top four again we have to win matches.
"At 1-0 down, it was a different game and a good point for us."
