Double lifts Spurs out of bottom three


Goals from Kyle Walker-Peters and Shayon Harrison in 2-0 win over bottom club Derby County moved Tottenham Hotspur out of the Premier League 2 Division 1 relegation zone.

The pair struck in the first 26 minutes at Stevenage before the Rams’ Kyron Stabana collected two quick yellow cards.

The win, only Spurs’ third of the season, means they climb above Reading and up to 10th position, but Derby are still 12th.

Spurs’ next match is at home to Chelsea on Friday 6 January at Hotspur Way, while Derby entertain Manchester City in the Premier League Cup at the iPro Stadium next Monday.
