Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas was a happy man after seeing his side win their first match at home this season.

Spurs had drawn their previous home games against Norwich and West Bromwich Albion but finally ended their White Hart Lane hoodoo against the R’s after Alejandro Faurlin’s own-goal and Jermain Defoe’s sixth goal of the season cancelled out Bobby Zamora’s opener.

“We have wanted this home win for some time but for whatever reason it has escaped us,” Villas-Boas said.

“It’s an important win for the team. We wanted to repay the fans for the trust they have put in us so that’s why everyone felt emotional at the end.”
