Following Tottenham Hotspur's penalty shootout win over Hull City, Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas claims that his side have not practised penalty kicks at all this season.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas was relieved following his side's penalty shootout win over Hull City in the League Cup last night.

Spurs booked their place in the quarter-finals with an 8-7 triumph in the shootout following a 2-2 draw after extra time.

Eight of Tottenham's nine penalties found the net, but Villas-Boas says that his side have not practised spot kicks at all this season.

"We practised and practised penalties for the Basel game last year, but we didn't this time," Villas-Boas told reporters.

"We haven't practised them for three or four months."

Prior to last night, Spurs had not won a penalty shootout since beating Peterborough United in 1994.
