Pressure eases on Ramos as Spurs hang on

Tottenham held off a late fight back by Polish side Wisla Krakow to qualify for the UEFA Cup group stages. Spurs have got off to a rotten start in the Premier League, which sees the side currently sitting rock bottom with only two points and it was crucial for Juande Ramos that they qualified for the group stages of the UEFA Cup.

With Spurs coming into the game 2-1 up from the home leg at White Hart Lane two weeks ago, Juande Ramos' men knew they needed to quiet the noisy home crowd and make it difficult for the hosts and they did that well in the first-half.

Tottenham took the lead mid-way through the second-half to send the travelling Spurs fans wild. Gareth Bale with a superb ball in from the left to see it deflected into the net by Wisla's Arkadiusz Glowacki. Spurs fans may of been forgiving for thinking that may of been enough but Wisla equalised on the night soon after.

Pawel Brozek with a lovely lob over the on-rushing Heurelho Gomes, which was followed by some intense pressure from the hosts. Gomes made a great save minutes from the final whistle and that proved enough to see the North London side through to the next stages of the UEFA Cup and ease the pressure of Ramos.
