Bale keeps Spurs marching on

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale's lightning reflexes proved enough to extend Tottenham's perfect Christmas and send them back into the Barclays Premier League top four as they won 1-0 in their London derby with Fulham.

The winger reacted brilliantly to flick Rafael van der Vaart's free-kick strike past a wrong-footed Mark Schwarzer three minutes before half-time.

Spurs missed plenty of chances to add to their lead but Michael Dawson also had to clear off his own line, with Fulham's lack of cutting edge once again costing them dear as they slipped to second bottom of the table.
