Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has declared himself happy with his side's display after they earned a 1-1 draw away at Hull City.

The hosts took the lead in the Premier League encounter at the KC Stadium when Shane Long bagged his first goal for Hull with 12 minutes on the clock.

Spurs struck back in the second half however when Paulinho turned, shot and rippled the back of the net just after the hour mark.

Hull could have won it late on, but Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris pulled off an impressive save from Nikica Jelavic.


And despite dropping two points, Sherwood was happy that Tottenham had been able to come away with at least something for their efforts, while he also feels his side played well.

"I thought we played well today. We had some good opportunities in the second half", he was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"We never took the chances and the positive to me is that we ground it out. If we don't win the game we certainly were not going to lose.

"We thought we should have won the game but you have to give Hull credit, they are fighting for their lives and they dug it out."

The result leaves Tottenham sixth on 44 points from 24 games.
