Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has praised his side following their 1-0 win over Stoke City this afternoon.

A first-half goal from Danny Rose saw Spurs claim the victory and move to within three points of fifth-placed Everton in the Premier League table.

"At this stage of the season it is about trying to get points, it is not always pretty and sometimes you have to dig in and work for each other and they certainly didnt look like they had their sunglasses and flip-flops packed ready for holiday," Sky Sports News quotes Sherwood as saying.

"They realised there was still a job to do for this great travelling support which we bring and they will try their best to the death, we have a derby at West Ham we need to win and we will send them home happy with victory in the final game with Aston Villa - that is the plan."

Spurs are unbeaten in their last four league matches.
