Michael Dawson has claimed that Sunday’s draw at Everton felt like a defeat.
Dawson had scored for the second consecutive match when he headed home a Niko Kranjcar corner to put Spurs 2-0 up, but contrived to throw away that lead in the last 15 minutes of the match.
Spurs had a further chance to win the game, but Jermain Defoe saw his penalty saved by Tim Howard and Dawson was disappointed to come away with only a point.
“It’s hard to take, but we’ll pick ourselves up again and that’s what you have to do,” Dawson told the Spurs Official Website.
“You can’t mope around – we’re still fourth in the league and we’ll now look forward to Wolves on Saturday.
“After 75 minutes it was all rosy, but then, bang, Everton scored and all of a sudden we were on the back foot. When we got the penalty we were all thinking we could end up winning the game anyway, but it wasn’t to be.
“We should have come away with all three points. It’s disappointing, but you have to give credit to Everton as well.”
Dawson felt that two points is far less than they deserved from two tricky away games, where the performances were good, but felt differing emotions regarding the Everton and Villa clashes.
“We can take more positives out of the Villa game and the second half performance after being 1-0 down away from home and coming back the way we did.
“The second half there was top quality and we took so many positives out of it.
“To be 2-0 up, comfortable and then draw at Everton was obviously very disappointing.”
