Juande Ramos admitted Tottenham's situation was "terrible" after Stoke's 2-1 win condemned his side to their sixth defeat in eight games.

Ramos has presided over Tottenham's worst ever start to a season and is feeling the pressure. To make matters worse for the Spaniard, Gareth Bale and Michael Dawson were shown red cards at the Britannia Stadium.

Ramos said: "I am worried about the situation. At the moment it is terrible."

He added: "Last season we won the Carling Cup and everyone was very happy. At this moment everyone is very sad and I am worried about it as I don't like this situation.

"We need to work very hard to change this situation and only hard work can change it. This is my job and I am working very hard each day to finish this situation.

"The responsibility is (with) all the people working in the club starting with me and finishing with the last person - we all have responsibility, when we win and when we lose."

Asked if he planned to meet Daniel Levy and whether he was confident he had the chairman's backing, he added: "I don't know - this is a question for the chairman.

"I speak to the chairman when he permits us to speak. He's a very busy person and I don't know when it will be possible to speak."

Bale conceded a penalty and was red-carded 17 minutes into the game. Danny Higginbotham scored from the spot and though Darren Bent equalised, Rory Delap grabbed the winner before Michael Dawson was given a straight red card for a studs-up challenge.
