Big Sam was absolutely buzzing after tonight’s amazing 2-1 win over Spurs but warned against another false Spurs dawn!

The manager said: ” “It’s a relief. For me, the challenge is to get the players to kick on from this.

“When we beat them last time, I thought we’d go on a run of results and pick up more points than we have done.

“I don’t know where we’ll go from here but it’s just a fantastic result and the lads are absolutely delighted.

“The players have stepped in like Matt Taylor, Alou Diarra and Jack Collison and Adrian in goal have done a fantastic job with the rest of the team.

“The squad is struggling for numbers at the moment, but what a fantastic performance from those who took part.

“You have got to play to your best to give the fans something to cheer about and we have sent them home extremely happy, having beaten the old enemy again, twice on the trot.

“It’s just a delight for them and, in the end, a delight for us as players and staff.”
