Vedran Corluka has praised the character of the team after twice coming from behind to take a point at Bolton on Saturday.

Corluka scored his first goal since joining from Manchester in 2008, with fellow countryman, Niko Kranjcar also getting his first goal in Spurs colours.

The result lifted Spurs to third place in the table and Corluka was happy with the performance against a stubborn Bolton side, who made the Spurs passing game difficult.

“It was a tough game for us and that’s the case for every team that comes here,” Corluka told the club website.

“Botlon are very good, they have lots of strength and we knew it would be difficult. We’re pleased because we were down twice and we showed the character to come back.”

‘Charlie’ was also delighted to get off the mark for Spurs, heading home Kranjcar’s cross to score Spurs’ second equaliser of the game and secure a point.

“I was in the right place at the right time. I was a little suprised – perhaps they underestimated me because I never head the ball!

“It was great to score my first goal though.”
