Pav at the double for Spurs

Published Add your comment

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko was on target again to help defeat Blackburn 3-1 at White Hart Lane and maintain his side's hopes of a top-four finish in the Barclays Premier League.

Pavlyuchenko has been unsettled for most of the season and looked set to leave during the January transfer window but stayed at the club and has now played a big part in Spurs' push for Champions League qualification.

Jermain Defoe opened the scoring against Sam Allardyce's men, then Pavlyuchenko doubled the lead before Christopher Samba pulled one back. Hopes of a Blackburn comeback, however, were dashed when Pavlyuchenko scored his eighth in his last six games.
