Jenas gutted after Ewood defeat

Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas admitted he was gutted after Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Blackburn at Ewood Park. Spurs dominated the majority of the game against a struggling Rovers side and took the lead through Robbie Keane's penalty. However, after Wilson Palacios had harshly seen red for a second bookable offence, the home side scored twice in the latter stages to nick all three points. "We've been playing really well lately and to come here and still play as well as we did, to battle, dominate the whole game and dicatate everything in footballing terms makes losing a really tough pill to swallow," Jenas told the club's official website. "I thought we dominated the whole game. We knew they only really had the long ball and we knew if we managed to stay on top of that then we'd win the game. "A decision from the referee completely turned the game on its head but we still should have seen it out. "We have to pick ourselves up quickly and move on."
