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."
