Spurs Add To Shearer's Woes

19 April 2009 03:09
Newcastle and Alan Shearer were plunged closer to relegation after Darren Bent fired Tottenham to a 1-0 victory.

Bent struck after 24 minutes to leave Shearer without a win in his first three games as temporary manager, and he now has five matches to keep his club in the Barclays Premier League.

Fortunately for them, they have home clashes against Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Fulham - but judging by their performance at White Hart Lane they will not be straightforward.

They struggled to impose themselves on Spurs until Obafemi Martins came on and had a goal disallowed and a huge penalty shout turned down.

It means Newcastle are now four points from safety and it looks like their survival bid will go to the wire.
