Spurs captain Keane: Draw like victory

Tottenham captain Robbie Keane says they can be proud of last night's 4-4 draw with Aston Villa.

"To come back from 4-1 down is unbelievable," Keane said on Setanta Sports 1. "You talk about dead and buried but we showed lots of character. That's what we have in this team.

"When you're 4-1 down, you go hell for leather.

"It does feel like a sort of victory to us in many ways."

Keane insisted beleaguered Jol had the full support of the Spurs players.

He said: "You should have seen him at the end when we scored the goal. He had the support from everyone. He's shown what a good manager he is over the past couple of years.

"We're going through a bit of sticky patch at the moment."

Man of the match Gareth Bale added: "It could be a turning point from now on.

"Hopefully that last goal can kick us on and give us a bit more confidence."
