Adebayor happy to be back on Spurs scoresheet

Emmanuel Adebayor was delighted to be on Tottenham's scoresheet in victory over Newcastle United.

The goal - his first in 713 minutes of competitive action - came as a huge relief to the former Arsenal man.

"I had a tough time. I didn't score for a few games but I came back and scored and I made a lot of assists," Adebayor told Spurs TV Online. "It's good for the confidence. We are all human. When you go through four, five, six games without scoring you start questioning yourself.

"You start saying: 'what is happening? What is wrong?'

"I got some stick from my team-mates as well - in a good way - so I was happy to score and to help the team win.

"I've worked hard in training and my team-mates all believe in me and what I can do."
