Tottenham striker Harry Kane admits they blew a top four chance with Sunday's 2-2 draw at Newcastle.
Joe Willock's 85th-minute Newcastle leveller denied the North Londoners fourth spot after Kane's double.
Kane hit the post moments before Willock's equaliser having scored two goals in four minutes after Joelinton's Toon opener.
And the Spurs skipper said: “It was a chance to go into the top four.
"It has happened too many times and it's simply not good enough for a club of our standard. It's killing all our ambitions.
“Whenever you're ahead in a game with five or ten minutes to go you expect to see the game out and we've had a few games where we haven't.
“We were sloppy. We didn't take our chances and got punished for it."
