I have no report to offer on this match, but having listened on the radio, I would say that the scoreline flatters Spurs a little. We were 2-1 up with minutes to go, and having defended a difficult situation well, Dominguez put the game beyond doubt after Ginola set him up on the counter attack.
Walker was given plenty of work to do, and it sounded like he was acting as a very efficient fifth defender. Charlton only had the one shot in the first half, and it led to a goal from Kinsella. Armstrong was caught offside several times, and lacked confidence in front of goal. Perhaps that's why he was replaced by Dominguez for the latter stages of the game.
Ginola had a super shot turned round the corner, and Sol Campbell scored his eighth goal of the season with a low diving header from a corner, after Steffen Iversen had levelled the scores following a good one-two with Sherwood on the edge of the area. Ginola wrapped the game up with a left foot strike just before the whistle. Spurs move up to ninth, and Charlton drop into the bottom three.
