QPR coach Jordan: More to Tottenham than Bale

QPR coach Joe Jordan says there's more to Tottenham than Gareth Bale.

The Welsh ace has dominated the headlines for Spurs this season.

"We faced Gareth about four or five weeks ago with QPR and we got a draw and Gareth was very, very quiet," Jordan said.

"But Spurs are not a one-man band, you have players like Mousa Dembele, Aaron Lennon, Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe.

"The reason they have done so well and are doing so well is because they have got match-winners.

"We had to look at it very carefully because we are at a QPR team that were and are bottom of the league and we couldn't play an open game because we would have got absolutely turned over.

"We nearly won the game, we got a good draw. I can't recall Gareth having a chance.

"We kept him very quiet and we know how Gareth is. We know what his strengths are, but it only takes one moment of indiscipline or lack of concentration and you have lost the game with people like that about."
