Spurs send Newcastle closer to relegation

6:04 am on 20 April 2009

Tottenham Hotspur maintained their late-season drive for European soccer and pushed Newcastle United further towards relegation when they won 1-nil this morning at White Hart Lane. Newcastle are four points from safety with five matches to play.

Spurs are within one point of West Ham United and seventh place which should guarantee a place in the Europa League next season.

Manchester City kept alive their faint hopes of European football with a 4-2 win over bottom-placed West Bromwich Albion.
