THE controversy surrounding Tottenham's winner at Fulham on Saturday has continued after Aaron Lennon admitted the goal shouldn't have stood.

Tom Huddlestone's hotly-disputed second-half strike was flagged offside by the linesman, only for referee Mike Dean to overrule his assistant as he deemed William Gallas was not interfering with play.

But wing-wizard Lennon told the Fulham players it should've been chalked off.

Midfielder Jonathan Greening revealed: "Most of the Tottenham players were laughing and saying 'if they give this now it's going to be a bit of a joke'.

"For one he was in an offside position and interfering with play. The linesman gave offside and I don't know why the ref tried to get involved really.

"Aaron Lennon admitted it was definitely offside, so I don't know what the referee saw."

Greening, who made his first start of the season in the 2-1 reverse, added: "It was an even game. We got a good goal and then were a bit sloppy to let them back into it straight away.

"They've come out strong in the second-half, but at the end of the day, the referee's decision has killed us."
