Just three minutes had elapsed when Dyer galloped away onto a Martins flick that came from a defensive clearance and bent a low shot beyond Paul Robinson into the Gallowgate goal. 1-0. He then revealed a t-shirt which read ‘Merry Xmas NUFC Supporters!"
Then on 7mins, Martins got his ninth of the season with a close-range header from a right-wing Parker cross. 2-0
Spurs got a foothold back in the contest on the quarter hour, when Murphy totally mis-hit his shot only for it to deflect off Taylor and leave Shay Given helplessly wrong-footed. 2-1
After 34mins, Emre was fouled and forced to leave the field for treatment. From the resultant free kick sent in to area by James Milner the ball bounced in the six yard box as Robinson failed to gather, allowing Scott Parker to head home from close range. 3-1. The second half lacked the excitement of the first as the 3 points were secured before half time.
