Tottenham were left frustrated as they missed out on the chance to go joint top of the Barclays Premier League after a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves.

Despite Spurs dominating large periods of the match it was the visitors took the lead after 22 minutes when the returning Steven Fletcher scored his ninth league goal of the season from a controversially-awarded corner.

Emmanuel Adebayor had a first-half effort disallowed for offside and the equaliser Tottenham's domination deserved came in the 51st minute when Luka Modric fired a shot under Wayne Hennessey. But following Modric's strike the hosts could not break down a resolute Wolves defence and had to settle for a point.
