Sherwood grateful to Spurs away fans

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has paid tribute to away fans who traveled to Ukraine for their Europa League defeat to Dnipro.

Just over a 100 fans travelled to the Dnipro Arena despite the well-publicised troubles in the country's capital Kiev.

"The players were not expecting any of our fans to travel due to all the troubles in Kiev but I told them they would be sure to be in attendance because they always have been there for us," said Sherwood.

"Even when I was a player they have always travelled wherever we played.

"The boys were certainly grateful to have our fans represented out there as was everyone at the football club so we would like to say a massive thank you to those fans who travelled all the way to Dnipro - we know it was far from the easiest trip for them. We really do appreciate their support.

"I genuinely believe we have the best travelling support in the country and to follow us across to Ukraine during difficult times in that country reinforces that point.

"We really do appreciate all their efforts and will do our best to turn this result around so we can all enjoy even more European journeys this season."
