Villas-Boas praises 'patient' Spurs

Andre Villas-Boas says Tottenham's patience was key to them securing a 2-1 away win at Stoke, which keeps alive their hopes of Champions League qualification.

Steven Nzonzi opened the scoring for Stoke, who had Charlie Adam sent off, but Clint Dempsey and Emmanuel Adebayor hit back to give Spurs victory.

Tottenham are two points ahead of Arsenal but have just one more Premier League game to play, at home to Sunderland, while the Gunners have to face both Wigan and Newcastle in their final fixtures.
