Luka Modric revealed his frustration after Tottenham were held by a stubborn Wolves at the weekend, but the Croatian midfielder says this minor hiccup is 'nothing to worry about'.

Had they won on Saturday, Spurs could have drawn level on points with Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City, but had to share the spoils.

Wolves had taken a surprise lead at White Hart Lane thanks to a header from Steven Fletcher, but Modric grabbed a leveller shortly after the break.

The home side then began to dominate, but were unable to grab the winner that, perhaps, their application and endeavour deserved.

And Modric summed up the feelings of the Spurs players at fans after the game.

"It was a shame we didn’t win," he told the official Tottenham website. "It was a hard game, especially when Wolves scored first.

"It’s always harder when the opposition score first against us at White Hart Lane, they can then sit back and it’s hard to break them down.

"In the second half we managed to score a goal and for 15, 20 minutes after that, we were all over them. We created chances but couldn’t score.

"In the end, it’s a draw. It’s nothing (to worry about). We need to start again, do what we were doing before this game and start winning again."
