Tottenham's Parker delighted to be part of Cup triumph

Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker was delighted to be back for their FA Cup win over Coventry City.

Parker played 80 minutes and was quickly into his stride as goals from Clint Dempsey (2) and Gareth Bale put the issue beyond doubt by half-time.

"I'm absolutely delighted," Parker told the Spurs website. "The main thing for me on a personal level is that I got through it alright and feel good.

"It was a great result and a fantastic team display, especially in the first half.

"Our main focus all week was how quickly we needed to start the game. We know that if we play at the pace we can play, it's very difficult for teams when they come here.

"We came out of the blocks and moved the ball so quickly, got the three goals and perhaps came off it a little in the second half, but it was a great performance."
