Defoe earns win for Spurs

Published Add your comment

Jermain Defoe scored his sixth goal of the season as Tottenham came from behind to beat QPR 2-1 and register their first home win under Andre Villas-Boas.

A dreadful first-half performance meant Villas-Boas left the pitch at half-time to a chorus of loud boos, after Bobby Zamora had put the visitors ahead.

However his team turned things around after the break, with Defoe's strike and an own-goal from Alejandro Faurlin handing the Portuguese his first win at White Hart Lane at the fourth attempt.
