Wigan boss Roberto Martinez said “soft goals” had cost his side, but hailed the spirit shown by his side in the second half.
Martinez said: “It doesn’t matter how well Spurs played in the first half, the frustration was that the two goals were soft – but I couldn’t be prouder of the second-half performance with 10 men.
“We looked like a team that could get something out of it and I’m disappointed we didn’t get a result, but it was a fantastic reaction and the players deserve credit.
“It’s important that you regroup and have a real reaction. If you’ve got real character you do that, if not you fold and you concede four or five and allow the opposition to have an easy afternoon.
“I didn’t think that was the case in the second half, we were really bright and stopped Spurs having the momentum.”
