Sherwood shuns fatigue talk
By Football News
Tim Sherwood refused to blame fatigue after his side lost 1-0 at Norwich City in the Premier League on Sunday.
Robert Snodgrass scored the winner two minutes into the second half of a match that saw Spurs fail to register a shot on target until the 81st minute.
And Sherwood bemoaned his side's sluggish start at Carrow Road.
"The result was very disappointing," he said. "The first-half performance was disappointing. Second half wasn't, but (it was) too late and if you don't take your chances, which we clearly had, then you ain't going to win no Premier League's top four, and Sherwood is under no illusions as to how big a blow Sunday's defeat is to his UEFA Champions League aspirations.
"It looks big and it's a real blow to us, but we've got to bounce back," he added.
"It's the first major setback I've had and we're going to need to be spirited to get back and show what we're made of."
