|Two goal hero - Gareth Bale|
Tottenham took five minutes to regain their composure and then created a couple of chances to add a third when Kenny denied van der Vaart. Then on 72 minutes Bale received the ball from Lennon to shoot past Kenny from the edge of the box. The goal drained Rangers confidence as Spurs started to control the game again. They failed to add to the score and it took two goal line clearances by Lennon and Bale in injury time to preserve the three points as QPR made a late effort to snatch a point.
if Rangers had succeeded in that late final surge Spurs would have been thoroughly down-hearted as they had so dominated the game in the first half and failed to make the most of it before relinquishing the advantage to QPR in the second period.
Another win takes Tottenham to fifth place, level on points with Chelsea and Newcastle United. Undefeated Newcastle visit Stoke tomorrow night and a defeat by two goals would see Spurs move above them on goals scored and with a game in hand.
