Defoe: Scored only goal of game

Defoe: Scored only goal of game

William Gallas' header, that flew over Manuel Almunia's bar, and a Joe Garner effort, that was blocked in the box, were the only chances of note in a poor first-half.

Spurs made four changes at the break and they paid off as Andre Vilas-Boas' men took the lead 10 minutes after the re-start when Kyle Walker's cross was headed past Almunia by Defoe.

Former Spurs man Mark Yeates went close twice for the home side but a host of changes from Hornets' boss Gianfranco Zola and Vilas-Boas disrupted the flow and neither side was able to add to Defoe's strike.
