Tottenham Hotspur were frustrated by Derby County for 70 minutes at Pride Park in the English Premier League on Saturday and it was only after that Spurs manager Juande Ramos brought on striker Dimitar Berbatov that the north London side could open the floodgates against the rock bottom Premiership strugglers.
Ramos hails this victory as a test of character and determination. The Spaniard says:
Football games last for 90 minutes so I think you must look at the overall picture. I think that Derby worked so hard for the first hour that the effort they used started to tell in the last 30 minutes and that is where we were able to make use of it.
Derby boss Paul Jewell of couse sees that game differenlt and moans the loss of 3 points. But at this stage when Spurs are gradually improving, Ramos could take anything as long as he gets 3 points from matches.
