A mixture of the First Team squad and the Development squad, took on Brentford FC in a behind closed door’s friendly at our new training ground yesterday at Bulls Cross, this is the second consecutive season we have taken on the bees in pre season behind closed doors.
Due to the nature of the game match report’s facts are limited, but spurs won 3-2.
We took the lead through who else but Gareth Bale, but then found our selfs trailing 1-2 by half time, goals from Brentford new boy Alan McCormack and a penalty from Will Gregg, after Caulker had blocked the goal bound effort with his hands.
At the break Spurs changed the entire 11, and ended up winning the second half, with two strikes from Jermain Defoe.
So a hard thought win for the boys in the first game back, but as is always the import fact with these type of games its all about fitness,Im sure some of the boys will be hoping to put on a better show on Tuesday night at Swindon, remember KO is at 7pm and tickets will be available to Tottenham fans on the night.
Spurs 1st half team: Friedel, Naughton, Dawson, Caulker, Rose; Mason, Huddlestone, Bentaleb; Lennon Bale Obika.
Spurs 2nd half team: Archer, Smith, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Stewart; Parker, Carroll, Sigurdsson; Townsend Defoe Ceballos.
