Bale earns his Spurs against Rovers

13 November 2010 06:30
Tottenham cruised to their first league win in five games thanks to another impressive performance from two-goal Gareth Bale, who helped his side secure a 4-2 victory over Blackburn. Bale put Spurs in front with a header in the 16th minute and after Roman Pavlyuchenko had missed a penalty, he made amends by heading the second four minutes before the interval. Peter Crouch added a third in the 68th minute before Bale scored his second of the game from a cross by Alan Hutton. Blackburn rallied too late with goals from substitute David Dunn in the 79th minute and a Gael Givet effort in the closing stages.
