Harry Redknapp’s White Hart Lane outfit took one step nearer to the dream of Champions League football with a well earned win away at Stoke City. Eidur Gudjohnsen put Tottenham ahead early in the second half and then saw the home side reduced to ten men when Dean Whitehead was sent off.
Matty Etherington then sent the Britannia Stadium wild by putting Stoke level against the odds. However Niko Kranjcar scored the winner for Spurs with fifteen minutes to play.
