Michael Dawson has urged Tottenham to put their defeat by Fulham before the international break behind them as they look to push on and secure a top-four finish this season.

The Cottagers were surprise 1-0 winners at White Hart Lane as Dimitar Berbatov returned to haunt his former employers by grabbing the only goal of the game in the second half.

That loss followed Spurs’ 3-2 defeat at Liverpool the week before, allowing top-four rivals Arsenal to close the gap to their neighbours back to four points.

But 29-year-old Dawson insists Andre Villas-Boas’ men must forget that defeat ahead of Saturday’s trip to Swansea City.

“Everyone was disappointed with the result against Fulham but that’s behind us now and we have to push on again,” Dawson told Spurs TV Online.

“We showed exactly what we’re capable of when we went on that unbeaten run and we’ve got to look to do something similar between now and the end of the season.

“We know it will be tough, but the determination is there.”
