Second string Spurs despatch Hearts

Published Add your comment

Tottenham secured their place in the group stages of the Europa League after a goalless draw against a much-improved Hearts side at White Hart Lane.

Spurs, who won last week's first leg 5-0 in Edinburgh, had a chance to open the scoring on the night when they won a penalty in the first half, but debutant Harry Kane had his spot-kick saved by Jamie MacDonald.

Aside from another first half effort, this time from Roman Pavlyuchenko, Harry Redknapp's inexperienced side never looked like scoring and Hearts were unlucky not to win the game, with Gordon Smith coming closest to breaking the deadlock with a 12th-minute effort that hit the bar.
