Andre Villas-Boas admitted that he was left frustrated after Tottenham were held to a goalless draw against Queens Park Rangers.
Spurs should have gone ahead after five minutes when Jermain Defoe’s fizzing shot rattled against Julio Cesar’s post and Emmanuel Adebayor should have done better with the rebound which Cesar saved well from.
It is the first time that we have failed to score a goal away from home under AVB.
Villas-Boas told Sky Sports: “We’re a bit disappointed, but we’ll take a point away from home and I think it’s the first time we haven’t scored for quite some time.
“The boys did well. We came out strong at the beginning and strong in the second half, we just couldn’t keep the momentum.
“Maybe we didn’t create as much as normal but we still take the point against a team that’s just won away from home (at Chelsea) and is full of confidence.
“Julio made some great, great saves, and in the end they are decisive because if you score one it unlocks QPR.
“They’re well organised, they defend well and can hit you on the counter, so to get that first goal was important for us. It’s a pity we couldn’t take those chances.”
