Emmanuel Adebayor was delighted to score on his Tottenham debut in the 2-0 win at Wolves, but insists the most important thing was to ensure his new club picked up three points at Molineux on Saturday.

The 27-year-old Togolese striker made an immediate impact when he opened the scoring for Spurs in the 67th minute, before Jermain Defoe added a second to confirm the victory.

Adebayor's goal meant it is the third time he has successfully found the net on his Barclays Premier League debut for three different clubs - including Arsenal and Manchester City prior to his season-long loan switch to White Hart Lane this summer.

"It's always good to have a chance to score on your debut," confirmed Adebayor. "Especially in a tough away match like this and I'm delighted.

"To score my first goal is always good for the confidence but I'm happier to take the three points, never mind my goal.


"It's a good win because we didn't give them any chances and you can't say 'okay, they deserved a draw'."

After back-to-back defeats in their opening two Barclays Premier League games this term, Adebayor feels the victory now gives Spurs something to build on and is confident if the players take it one game at a time, they can build towards a successful season.

"I think we showed how good the team is, we played good football, showed great technical ability and hopefully will be more to come," he continued.

"It's important now to keep focused, keep going and we look forward to an important game on Thursday and then Liverpool on Sunday."
