Ryan Mason has acknowledged that Tottenham are in a difficult moment after slumping to another defeat at Aston Villa.
Spurs were beaten 2-1 to goals by Jacob Ramsey and Douglas Luiz to dent their hopes of booking a slot in the Champions League places.
They are sitting in sixth place, ahead of seventh-placed Villa on goal difference, and are now in a shootout for a top-seven spot, with Brighton also in the mix.
“We can’t hide from the fact that we are where we are - it’s a difficult moment," Mason said in his post-match interview.
"But at the same time, everyone is pulling together and trying to create a togetherness now and going forward and ultimately results change that on the pitch for sure.
"But the environment that you set within is probably the most important thing.
“Obviously, we’ve had a disappointing season in terms of where we are in the table but also many other things.
"There probably hasn’t been that consistency, that alignment, that togetherness throughout the whole cub."
Mason was however upbeat about Spurs improving on their performances with two games remaining.
"That’s probably the most important thing going forward that we're going to change," the interim manager added.
"I'm absolutely confident that will change. Football can change very quickly.
"When you've got people here that care about the club and want to make it better I believe that will happen.”
