Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas was overcome with emotion after watching his players deliver him his first home win in charge against QPR.
With his team 1-0 down at half-time, Spurs left the field to a chorus of boos but they regrouped after the break and put in a much-improved performance to leave White Hart Lane with three points thanks to a strike from Jermain Defoe and an own goal from Alejandro Faurlin.
"We have wanted this home win for some time but for whatever reason it has escaped us," Villas-Boas said. "It's an important win for the team. We wanted to repay the fans for the trust they have put in us so that's why everyone felt emotional at the end."
