Jol: Spurs will improve as players return

Tottenham boss Martin Jol expects results to improve as they get more players back from injury.

He said: "We are a much, much better side than our league position suggests and we will prove this as the season progresses.

"More and more players are coming back into the reckoning, Teemu Tainio makes us more solid as a unit, while we also have the players to give us a spark.

"We were training today with the likes of Adel Taarabt, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Aaron Lennon and Wayne Routledge and we are lucky to have these youngsters with bundles of talent.

"We have had something like 15 chances in our last three away matches and what we need now is a higher conversion rate. If I give them the chance to play and express themselves they have to deliver.

"What we need now is to score more goals, don't concede and keep clean sheets - 70% of the goals we have let in have been avoidable and that is what we have to do. It comes down to team spirit."
