Tottenham assistant coach Kevin Bond has dismissed concerns over Emmanuel Adebayor's scoring record.

Instead, he praised the striker's all-round game, which he believes has helped the team lots this season.

"He's been terrific for us," Bond said. "He's chased people down, he's everywhere and anywhere. The fact that he hasn't hit the net recently doesn't mean he hasn't made a big contribution.

"He's had a few chances that haven't gone in lately. That's how it is for strikers but we're not dwelling on that.

"He's a very positive guy. You haven't got to do anything to keep Ade's spirits up. He's a great guy."
