Andre Villas-Boas pleased with Tottenham Hotspur opener

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas admits that he is pleased with his side's draw in their opening pre-season clash with Swindon Town.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he was pleased with his side's performance in their first pre-season game as they drew with Swindon Town.

Gareth Bale opened the scoring for Spurs in the 15th minute but they were pegged back in the second half by Andy Williams's strike.

"We had some good moments. Overall, I think a good first show from the team," Villas-Boas told the club's official website.

"We had some good chances. We're trying to build up physically, some good points to take and we won't stop working hard.

"We have to congratulate Swindon, they played very well including our players on loan."

Spurs are next in action on Friday against Colchester United.
