Kyle Naughton is aiming to keep his place in the Tottenham team after impressing on his first Premier League start for the club in the 3-1 win at Reading.
The 23-year-old right back filled in for the absent Benoit Assou-Ekotto at left back and put in an assured performance as Andre Villas-Boas secured his first win as Spurs manager.
Naughton was delighted to make his first start and hopes to get more playing time when Spurs face Lazio in the Europa League on Thursday night.
“It was great to get the three points and that the gaffer gave me a chance to show what I can do,” he told Tottenham’s official website.
“I played at left-back a few times for Norwich last season and hopefully now I can carry on playing.
“Towards the end I was tiring a little and they got in behind us a little but the more games I play, hopefully the stronger I’ll get.
“Everyone’s been brilliant and I just hope I can carry on now and play in the Europa League.”
