After his worst howler of the season at Craven Cottege in November, when he conceded a soft goal in the 2-1 defeat Spurs goalkeeper Huerelho Gomes has admitted turning to his family for help.

"When I went home I blocked it out and spoke with my family and everyone," he said. "Everyone in my family helped me so much and that was important for me. It was a bad moment for me.

"I came back in the second half of that game and made a good save. My mentality is so strong."

And Gomes now feels he can go on and show Redknapp and the Spurs fans why he was rated a world class keeper with PSV.

"I had four big seasons in Holland," he said. "I helped PSV so much and they helped me so much as well.

"England is a big challenge but I think I am better now [after mistakes] and I will help Tottenham so much in the next games."
