Doherty confident winning back Tottenham place

Tottenham defender Matt Doherty says he's confident of winning back his place.

The former Wolves defender had largely endured a difficult time of things in north London but hit form after Conte's arrival, scoring twice and registering as many assists in his final seven outings.

Speaking to the Irish Mirror, Doherty said: “I'm not frustrated. I understand where the manager is coming from where he thought my fitness was and he was right at the end of the day.

“I know that he trusts me, I know that once I'm back again, he knows what I can do for him.

“Once he thinks I'm available, I'm sure he'll give me more time."
