Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas was happy to settle for a Europa League point from the 1-1 draw at Maribor.

Group J remains wide open after Gylfi Sigurdsson's second-half strike cancelled out Robert Beric's opener for the Slovenians shortly before the break.

Villas-Boas said: "The second half was extremely good, the first half was not so good.

"We came back into the game, which is pleasant to see again and it is good for us to bounce back.

"It is obviously not the full result we wanted bearing in mind the draw between Lazio and Panathinaikos, but certainly we will take a point.

"The group is completely open. What we face now is two games at home and I think we are in a good position in the group.

"We are in third position. We have three games to play, there are nine points to play for.

"You see the group - it is very tight. It is not a group where the leader has run off with points."

Maribor manager Darko Milanic said: "We should have stopped the goal, but I'm very happy for my team. It's an important point that keeps us alive to advance to the next stage."
