Jermain Defoe scored against his old club to earn Tottenham a point that lifts them out of the Premier League relegation zone on goal difference.

Portsmouth keeper David James, who made a series of superb stops, denied Aaron Lennon seconds before David Nugent put Pompey in front with a deflected shot.

But Luka Modric set up Defoe to drill home an equaliser soon after, and Spurs pushed forward in search of a winner.
