Parker: Magic in squad bringing success


Spurs midfielder Scott Parker says his side’s sensational sequence of wins is down to magic.


The England international feels that pieces of individual brilliance are getting Harry Redknapp’s side out of tight situations.


The 3-0 victory over Bolton at White Hart Lane on Saturday was an example of this, with Aaron Lennon scoring a strike of great quality.


“We’ve got players in the team who have the ability to step up and produce that little piece of magic that can make all the difference,” said Parker


“At any moment in any game we have players who can score goals or change a game and that’s brilliant to have.


The 31-year-old was once again influential in another impressive win for Harry Redknapp’s side.


Parker feels that the flair players in the squad are stepping up this season and that title ambitions are becoming ever more serious.


“We’ve a number of match winners in a very strong squad and confidence is high.”


The win over Bolton was in the balance for a time, despite Gary Cahill seeing red early on after referee Stuart Atwell deemed he had denied Parker a clear goalscoring opportunity.


It wasn’t until Aaron Lennon scored the second goal that Spurs fans began to breathe easily.


“When you are out there, at 1-0, it’s very tricky,” said the former West Ham United man.


“They have players who can cause a few problems in the air from set-plays, so it was key to get the second goal.”


The victory over Bolton was Spurs’ sixth successive league win and marked 11 premier League games since their last defeat – equalling the club record.
