Tottenham boss Martin Jol has revealed under-fire Paul Robinson has sacrificed his days off in order to improve his game.

Robinson has been criticised in some quarters this season following some less than convincing performances for club and country.

It is in sharp contrast to last season's form when Robinson was widely recognised as one of the Premiership's best goalkeepers.

Robinson's standards have dipped slightly this term, but Jol has backed the England international's hard work to pay off in the long run.

"He is coming in to work on his day off and that is the difference," said Jol.

"With the number of games we have had, we don't have many of those. I think he is a top sportsman."
