Jol praises Spurs comeback

Published Add your comment

Martin Jol saluted the resilience of his Tottenham players after storming back from 4-1 down against Aston Villa to avoid an ´unthinkable´ defeat on the club´s 125th anniversary.

The hosts were cruising when Craig Gardner scored their fourth just before the hour mark, only for Spurs to rescue a point in stoppage time.

"At half-time we said we have to play for he shirt and give everything - they did that," he said. "It was relief in the end. A win would have been better. I don´t even want to think about it if would have lost."
