It was a cool morning with the sun shining low over the pitch which was soaked from all the rain in the week, leading to many of the players losing their footing. As expected there was only a small gathering, due to the North London Derby.
Spurs lined up with Casey alongside Mills at the back with Hughton at right back and Martin at leftback. Archibald-Henville again partnered Livermore in central midfield with Davis on the right and Fraser-Allen on the left in support of Pekhart and Hutton up front.
Spurs defended the South end in the first half with the sun at their backs and in a fairly uneventful half had the better of the play. Neither side were able to provide a good final ball to test the keepers. Pekhart had two efforts well wide.
Livermore’s surging runs were the main threat. Davis had to be replaced early on by Smith who went to right back with Hughton moving forward. Hughton made a few runs down the line getting crosses in while Fraser-Allen only managed it once.
The second half started like the first, but with more pressure from the home side as the wide players began to make more runs. The deadlock was broken by Hughton getting down the wing and crossing for Pekhart to head home from six yards. Two minites later and Fraser-Allen did the same down the left and Pekhart was in the same place to head his second.
With a two goal cushion, Inglethorpe brought on Kasim for Archibald-Henville in midfield. With ten minutes left Fraser-Allen got the ball on the left and beat Burgess who tripped him as he went away, which earned the Coventry player a booking. From Hutton’s freekick Mills glanced a header into the far corner. With the game over both coaches made the rest of their substitutes with Medley coming on for Pekhart.
With both Reading and Leicester winning today there is no change in the table. Next week we are at home to Aston Villa who are in fourth place in the last game before the Christmas break. I will be at the Charlton game so will miss it.
