Aaron Lennon scored an injury-time winner as Tottenham maintained their 100 per cent record in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Birmingham at White Hart Lane.
Substitute Roman Pavlyuchenko found the England wideman in the dying moments and he cut inside before unleashing a shot from 18 yards which smuggled under Joe Hart and into the net for the winner.
It was Tottenham’s fourth consecutive win and their formidable home record under Harry Redknapp continues: they have now won their last eight league matches at the Lane.
Another sub Peter Crouch had given the hosts the lead on 71 minutes when Lennon was tripped by James McFadden allowing Tom Huddlestone the chance to swing in an inch perfect free-kick. The beanpole striker climbed high above Roger Johnson at the back post to plant a header over Hart and into the net.
