Spurs boss Jol backs "slow starter" Berbatov

Tottenham boss Martin Jol is confident goals are around the corner for Dimitar Berbatov.

"After the last season, you could say he (Berbatov) is a slow starter," said Jol. "After scoring he is always different. You need a bit of success, as a player and as a team.

"He is a quiet lad but has confidence and shows it every day."

Poor finishing by all of Jol's strikers has contributed to four points and four defeats so far.

Jol added: "If you have quality up front they have to make the difference. If they don't it's not a problem if the other one scores or if the midfielders and defenders score.

"If you miss at crucial moments it could be a problem."
