I was a little bit nervous today," Adams admitted to Sky Sports 1.
"But my team didn't let me down. They were very resilient, they battled and gave Tottenham a very difficult game which we have been doing of late.
"I'm really proud of the way they performed especially Sol (Campbell) who was fantastic, coming back here was mentally tough for him," he added.
"The goalkeeper was fantastic and if we have players like that I think we will be ok."
