Defoe des­per­ate for sticky end­ing

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY APRIL 12 - By JON WEST

TOT­TEN­HAM hot­shot Jer­main Defoe has told his team-mates to for­get about their sticky patch.

Defoe wants them in­stead to re­mem­ber just how good they were ear­lier in the sea­son, so they can hold off the chal­lenges of New­cas­tle and Chelsea.

Harry Redknapp’s side have had to give up on their dream of pip­ping Manch­ester United and Manch­ester City for the Premier League ti­tle.

And Arse­nal are now favourites to claim third place, which means Spurs will have to dig in to hang on to fourth.

Mon­day’s 2-1 home de­feat by Nor­wich didn’t help but Defoe – on tar­get in that game – isn’t for giv­ing up.

“It’s im­por­tant to re­group now and ev­ery­one has to stick to­gether,” he said. “We’ve had a fan­tas­tic sea­son and we just need to think about how we’ve played be­fore to win games.

“We’ve got to keep work­ing hard and try to get as many points as we can.

“We’ve just got to try to for­get about the Nor­wich re­sult.”
