Tottenham Hotspur defeat Watford 1-0 in Lloyd Doyley's testimonial thanks to a goal from the returning Jermain Defoe.

Jermain Defoe scored the only goal of the game as Tottenham Hotspur continued their unbeaten pre-season preparations with a win against Watford.

The match at Viacarage Road, which was Lloyd Doyley's testimonial for the Hornets, saw Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas experiment with a number of options.

Defoe scored on his first-team return after leaving Spurs' US tour due to a family bereavement, heading home a cross by Kyle Walker on the hour.

Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon constantly swapped flanks as Villas-Boas tried to mix things up, also handing a start to youngster Tom Carroll.

Spurs have now gone five pre-season matches without defeat as they build towards a tricky trip to Newcastle United in their Premier League opener on Saturday, August 18.
