Reid Pleased With Performance

Alan Smiths goal gave Leeds an early lead at White Hart Lane but two wonder strikes by Tarricco and Kanoute gave Spurs victory.

"Sometimes you just have to hold your hands up. They were two fantastic strikes and I can't argue with the result. Those were the difference between the two teams."

"A lot has been written about this club over the past few months but a few more performances like that and we won't have many problems.

"We had lots of defending to do when Spurs put us under pressure where we did it well.

"Alan Smith was impressive again. I was ever so pleased with him - he is getting better and better. But Mark Viduka looked a bit weary. That's why we took him off.

"It was very hot out there. Even I was sweating just standing on the sidelines, but Mark has had a tough international game in midweek and it has clearly taken a lot out of him."
