Villas-Boas unfazed by slow Spurs start

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas insists he is not panicking about Tottenham's season despite seeing his team concede an injury-time equaliser to draw 1-1 with West Brom.

Tottenham dominated the first half but Jermain Defoe, Rafael van der Vaart, Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale all spurned good chances.

Their profligacy looked as if it was going to go unpunished when Benoit Assou-Ekotto smashed home a half-volley 16 minutes from full-time, but James Morrison snatched a point for West Brom in injury time.

Villas-Boas said: "It is very, very important to get that first win but there are still 36 games ahead of us. We have one more point than we did this time last year."
