Adebayor admits the three points were a must in their battle for a top three finish.
"At half-time I was speaking to Benoit Assou-Ekotto and I said 'no matter what, no matter how, we need the three points'," revealed Adebayor to the Spurs website.
"I didn't know how we were going to score again, but we had to win.
"When they came back to 1-1 it was quite difficult in the head for us but we have a good squad, a good belief that we can turn things around and we showed character and personality to do that.
"The win was important for the team, for the fans and hopefully we can go on a good run until the end of the season."
