Tottenham head coach Juande Ramos has vowed to stay at White Hart Lane even after Sunday's home defeat to Hull City left his side rooted to the foot of the Premier League table. Geovanni's superb free-kick helped the Tigers clinch a 1-0 victory at Spurs, but Ramos was pleased with his side's work ethic and is convined their fortunes will soon start to improve. He said: "This is my job. I am the same whether we win or lose. Any decision on my future is not up to me but I am determined to put it right. It is my job, my work. "The main problem for us is scoring goals. You have to score to win games and we are finding that difficult. But if we continue to play similar to how we did against Hull we can change the situation. "I thought the players gave a big effort and we had many opportunities to score but it wasn't to be. "The opposition scored in the early minutes again but after that we hit the post twice, had clear-cut chances and spent the second half attacking, attacking and attacking. "In football, sometimes it's very difficult to explain things. We wanted to win, we played to win and I think if we play in a similar way we will change this situation. "The attitude of the players is very positive in training and when I speak with them my feeling is that they want to finish this situation quickly. "They are unhappy because it wasn't a good scoreline but I'm sure if they have the same attitude in the next match it will be possible to win." Russia international Roman Pavlyuchenko will have a scan to determine to extent of the ankle injury he sustained against Phil Brown's side.
