COMMENT By Editor Wayne Veysey
Tottenham took a vital step towards qualifying for next season’s Champions League by securing a hard-earned point at Brighton on Tuesday night.
Harry Kane’s 26th league goal of the season, following Gaetan Bong’s error, put Spurs in sight of an 11th away win as he continued his sensational scoring run on the road with a poacher’s finish.
But Brighton were behind for just two minutes before Pascal Gross levelled with an excellent penalty after Serge Aurier had caught Jose Izquierdo.
Tottenham did not clinch the win they wanted to pull further clear of fifth-placed Chelsea but are still well positioned to finish in the top four.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have 68 points from 34 league matches, eight more than their west London rivals, who have a match in hand.
