Tottenham were made to work for their win over 10-man Stoke City, but left the Britannia Stadium with all three points today.
Spurs went into the game still hopeful of a top four finish and did their cause no harm with the hard-fought win today, defeating the Potters 1-0 with a goal from Danny Rose - even though an Arsenal win on Monday against Newcastle will rule Spurs out of the top four race.
The season is now drawing to a close and whilst it's been a disappointing campaign for Tottenham after spending so much money last summer, with Tim Sherwood receiving plenty of criticism since replacing Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane back in December.
Yet despite the naysayers, Sherwood's record is actually fairly impressive, and fans took to Twitter after today's game to praise Sherwood, with some even suggesting that he should keep the job for next season too, despite rumours that chairman Daniel Levy will look to replace him.
Here are some of the tweets posted by Spurs fans after their 1-0 win over Stoke City this afternoon.
