Souness: We deserved something
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).
Blackburn boss Graeme Souness insists that his side deserved to take something from the New Year's clash at the Lane.
Blackburn did put us on the back foot for a lengthy period in the second half, leaving Souness to rue a goal that he considered a poor one to concede.
"We should have got something from the game," reflected the Scot. "We made a mistake, conceded a poor goal but had chances in the second half and were dominating the game.
"There were half chances, some were better than half chances, but we didn't have the break in front of goal and that sums up our last two games.
"I think you have to give credit to Tottenham, they had the better of the first half. It was nothing like it in the second when we, I felt, dominated it for about 25 minutes.
"In that time they defended well, I thought we defended well for the largest part, but the corner kick they got the goal from wasn't the best defending by us.
"We were unlucky, but that's been the story of our festive season."
The defending for Deano's goal just before half-time did not impress the well-travelled manager.
"It was a poxy goal. Henning Berg held his hand up and said it was a corner, but it wasn't a good goal to give away. There's always two sides to a story but from our part it wasn't a good goal.
"I believe if we keep playing like we did in the last 25 minutes of the game we'll be fine. We've got good players, I'm not panicking, they'll keep believing and as long as that happens we'll be okay. We're not doing anything wrong, it's just a little phase that we're going through."
