Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is determined to end his goal drought.

Defoe has yet to find the net for Spurs this season despite scoring twice for England in the recent international with Andorra.

The former West Ham man has set his sights on breaking his duck against Fulham on Sunday and he is confident he can get among the goals this season if he gets a regular run in the side.

"It's Fulham on Sunday but I am not worrying about lack of goals," said Defoe.

"Don't forget, I have only started two games so far this season. What I need is a run of matches and people know I will get goals.

"I am waiting for my chances - if I get them then I will score. The season before last I got 23.

"I just have to be solid and remain patient. I knew before the game against Slavia Prague there would not be many chances and that's the way it proved."

Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Martin Jol has no regrets about loaning out Wayne Routledge to Fulham despite Aaron Lennon's knee injury.

Routledge would have been the ideal replacement for Lennon who faces six weeks on the sidelines for the injured Lennon

However, Jol insists he was right at the time to let Routledge move on.

"We cannot recall Wayne until January but two weeks ago we didn't know that Aaron would get injured," said Jol.

"Aaron was okay and Routledge wasn't playing. We had to make a deal with Malbranque at the time and injuries happen."
