Curbishley committed to Charlton

Charlton boss Alan Curbishley
Charlton manager Alan Curbishley has dismissed reports linking him with the Tottenham job after seeing his side take three points at White Hart Lane.

"I'm happy at Charlton. I've got a job to do and I'm looking forward to doing it. Hopefully that result will give us a kick start," he said.

"Going down to 10 men changed the game. We were hanging on at the end but we deserved the victory.

"It was a terrific performance and Shaun Bartlett scored two great goals."

But Bartlett went from hero to villain when he was dismissed for a deliberate handball and left his team-mates battling to hold onto their lead.

"We've been struggling and haven't done ourselves justice, but goals change that and we were full of confidence. I couldn't see Spurs getting back in it," Curbishley added.

"We were playing well and we were comfortable but it all changed. Their confidence lifted and we took a hit as we've been on a bad run.

"We've been desperate to win away from home. The Spurs fans got behind their team and they bombarded us with long balls in the box and we had it all to do to hold out."
