Martin O'Neill pointed out in his official site post match reaction (Click Here) the rock that was our keeper yesterday v Spurs also saying how fantastic the boys at the back were for us.
On the defenders he said 'They are prepared to be very, very brave when it is demanded.' And on Brad Friedel 'I just think Brad has been exceptional. In the last number of weeks now, his performances have been terrific. He's having a great time. I think he has been reinvigorated with the coming in of Brad Guzan. They get on very well together but there is a bit of competition.'
On the game he admitted it was 'difficult' and had hoped that the side would have made more out of our counter attacks.
'Tottenham are a very fine side and they pegged us back in the second half. In the last 20 minutes of the game, they were putting it into the penalty area, which is absolutely their prerogative to do that.'
Appy Arry told the Official Spurs site
'I thought we played well and that's always the main thing for me. We created all the chances but just couldn't get the break. I thought we were the better side and I thought the same when we drew at Villa Park. They got some great blocks in and their centre-halves kept throwing their bodies in the way. They did that well and they are well-known for doing that. I couldn't fault the way we played.' Adding 'It would have been great to get the three points but it wasn't to be.'
