Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone has urged fans to stick with manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Fans were left frustrated after defeat at home to Wigan Athletic last weekend.

"We're probably harder to beat and maybe not as open (under Villas-Boas)," said Huddlestone.

"He's come in and been very organised, the lads know what session we're going to do before we go out to train.

"A lot of it is on rigid team shape, whereas under previous regimes the initiative has been given to the players to express themselves. Under this manager it's more his ideas and we stick to them.

"There have been a couple of games recently where we've needed to create more but I think that will come in time.

"It is hard for the fans. They've watched some good football over the last three or four years, maybe in a gung-ho style. But they've just got to be patient.

"The manager's still getting his ideas across and the lads are still getting fully used to what he wants us to do."
