LABBY'S LOG - SPURS HOME

Brian Labone was 'ecstatic' after Everton recorded a 3-1 win over Spurs, but believes that the Blues are still one win away from guaranteeing Premiership safety.

David Moyes' side secured the points without their first-choice strike partnership of Duncan Ferguson and Wayne Rooney, who missed the game through suspension.

The loss of the striking duo was a big concern for Labone before the game, but he was more than happy with the players who replaced them in the team.

"I'm absolutely ecstatic - we were like Real Madrid in the first half," he told evertonfc.com.

"I was a bit worried that we didn't have Rooney or Ferguson, but McFadden and Radzinski didn't half do well- the other two will have a job getting back in!

"But it was a good team performance. We moved the ball well, scored three good goals - and all from defenders! I might have had a chance tonight!

"Tottenham have been a bit of a bogey side for us in recent seasons, but you could tell that we wanted to win right from kick-off. It was pleasing to see.

"Let's just hope we can keep it up until the end of the season."

However, despite the euphoria surrounding the well-earned victory, Labone isn't completely convinced that Everton are completely safe from relegation.

At present, the Blues are in 12th position on 37 points, but the teams below have games in hand - and that's something which concerns the Legend.

"We've got 37 points," he mused.

"I do think that the teams that go down will have a low points total, so we could be safe now, but we're still not sure.

"We need one more win - and we need it to come at Leeds on Tuesday. That means we can play with confidence until the rest of the season.

"But enough doom and gloom - Liverpool got stuffed, so it has turned out to be a really Good Friday for us. Happy Easter everyone!"
