As it happens, it was the Argentine whose piledriver from 25 yards levelled the scores just before the break and we went on to win 2-1 thanks to Fredi Kanoute's overhead kick.
It was only Tano's second goal for Spurs but one to remember as he cut in from the left before unleashing a shot that left Paul Robinson grasping at thin air.
"We needed a goal from somewhere and luckily it was me," said Tano. "Whoever scored, it would have been great.
"It gave us a lift otherwise we wouldn't have played too badly but gone in 1-0 down. That happened in our last game as well and it can hit you a little.
"I was delighted we turned it around and got the points.
"We needed a win. We performed well, we were solid, we put pressure on them and got it. It would have been tough had we not got it. But we did it, the next game is Liverpool and we concentrate on that now."
Typically understated, Mauricio Taricco said it didn't matter who scored our equaliser against Leeds United - it was all about giving us the impetus to clinch a much-needed victory.
