That winning feeling!

Gareth Bale hopes the victory over Fulham on Tuesday night will give us a kick-start as we prepare for a busy run of games over the coming weeks.

The win was our first in four games, in which the young Welshman was once again impressive at left-back.

He will be hoping to play a key part in a run that will see us play four games in less than two weeks, starting at in-form Birmingham City on Saturday.

But Gareth hopes the important victory against the Cottagers will give us the belief to take maximum reward from this spell of fixtures.

He said: "It was a very important win for us, especially after going three games without one, so things are looking good again.

"We all knew it was going to be a tough game and that we had to work hard, but all the lads put in a good shift and we got the right result.

"There are a lot of games coming up but we go out to look to win every game and we're going to keep doing that for the rest of the season."

The win served as something as a milestone for Gareth, who started in a winning Spurs team for the first time in the Premier League since joining us back in 2007.

Manager Harry Redknapp said: "It was good for Gareth to start in a winning team, I think that was the first time. Incredible. I nearly took him off with two minutes to go. I thought 'surely not'! I've never mentioned it to him, he's a terrific lad and has been in terrific form."

On his current good form, the 20-year-old added: "I'm taking each game as it comes but hopefully I can stay in the team now and we can kick on.

"I just want to keep concentrating on doing my best when I get out on the pitch and helping the team. I hope I've been doing that."
