Albion are now five points above the relegation zone much to the frustration of Brunt.
"We're disappointed with Saturday's result," Brunt told his club's official website.
"We thought we deserved to win the game but Spurs have that bit of quality and it paid off for them in the end.
"Adebayor scored two goals and his flick set up the second goal. That came in a period when we were doing well in the game.
"In the first half I thought we were very good and the penalty knocked the stuffing out of us again. I should at least have hit the target with my chance.
"Mozza (James Morrison) did well to pull it back, it sat up well, and I just tried to get good contact on it. I probably got too good a contact on it - that's the best way I can describe it.
"It was pretty close - but that doesn't mean anything! It shows you how fine the difference is between winning and losing."
