Tottenham's Jenas: We must scrap for results

Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas says they must learn to grind out results as they attempt to lift themselves off the foot of the table.

"We've got great technical players but the Premier League is not like that sometimes and you have to dig in and make it scrappy," Jenas said ahead of their clash with Wigan Athletic.

"It's all about the three points. Teams are not going to just let us play football so we have to stand up and be counted.

"Sometimes you can get yourselves in a rut and we were in that effectively.

"The attitude has always been there but we've had the odd thing not going for us or the odd chance not going in at a vital time. Against Wisla we thought that this was the time to get it moving."

Spurs looked nervous at times against Wisla and an away goal from the Poles left the tie in the balance going back to Krakow a week on Thursday.

Jenas, however, added: "There is a different feeling around the ground, it's a bit more chirpy and there is a buzz. We need to take that in to the match against Wigan.

"It worked against us after drawing with Chelsea because we then had an international break. It's up to us now to stick together and get a result."
