Spurs' on-loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor says cool heads saw them through in the win at West Brom over the weekend.


The Togolese international scored twice in a 3-1 win for Harry Redknapp’s side, including the equaliser after going behind.


Adebayor believes the team’s ability to not panic was the main reason behind their comeback to claim a ninth win in a ten-match unbeaten run.


"We all know what we can do," he told the official Tottenham Hotspur website. "You could see when they scored that no-one panicked, we told ourselves to keep going, to keep the belief that we could come back and win.


"Even going behind didn't affect us because we’ve got the capacity to come back and win the game and that’s what we did.”


The 27-year-old felt that winning from a losing position is testimony to the confidence and spirit currently running through Harry Redknapp's side.


"It’s always good to show team spirit, character and personality. This win said a lot of things,” continued Adebayor.


"I think even if we’re 1-0, 2-0 down, we could come back and win because we have the ability and belief to come back.


"To do it in an away game is good for us. At home, we can do it, we know that, but to do it away, all I can say is congratulations to the team."


This hot run of form has lead many to suggest, including those inside White Hart Lane, that Spurs can put a credible title challenge together.


Adebayor has expressed his desire to make his move to the other side of North London permanent, but there are serious salary and transfer fee obstacles to overcome and many see the move as unlikely.
