Stoke City boss Tony Pulis described their 1-0 victory at Tottenham as ‘a massive three points’.
The away side stole all three points with just four minutes to play at White Hart Lane, while the home side were down to ten men due to an injury to Aaron Lennon.
“It was an absolutely tremendous result for us. To come to a team who will break into the top four and get three points really shows how far this football club has come,” Pulis told Stoke’s official site.
“I am absolutely delighted for the supporters because once again they were immense. They stood behind the team when they were on top of us and really helped the lads through.
“Tottenham were fantastic at times today, but we kept them out and then when we had the chance we took it. It was a great goal, and once again Ricardo pulled something out of the bag to set him up.
“The DNA of this Club is that you have to turn up and work hard, and we certainly did that today,” he added.
“It is important to work as a group and that is why we have got this result. That is why we have achieved what we have over the past few years. Whilst we have fantastic individuals like Ricardo and Matty Etherington, the key is to work as a unit, and that was a great example of that today.
“We can’t get to carried away with the result because we have a massive game coming up against Wolves. It will be the first time they have come to our place as a Premier League Club, so I am desperate for the supporters to show them exactly what we are made of now.”
