Jol thrilled as Fulham keep Tottenham ace Bale quiet

Martin Jol felt Gareth Bale had his quietest game as Fulham edged Tottenham 1-0 today.

The Welshman has been in blistering form in recent times but was unable to influence Spurs as they failed to score for just the second time this year.

"I think we kept it simple today with Bale and [Mousa] Dembele, it was probably the quietest game for Bale," Jol told reporters.

"They are strong and with Bale, we showed all the videos and in the end I left maybe 90 per cent out because it was almost like a trauma at the end for my boys.

"I think the first half we tried to restrict them and we didn't play as well as we could, but we were very well organised."
