The second half started at a subdued tempo, although this was mainly down to the away side's ineptitude. Long and aimless balls played up the field, or generally failing to string more than a couple of passes together inside their own half (where Spurs had them pinned) didn't make for a particularly exciting second period.
Spurs enjoyed long spells of possession during this time, however they failed to really capitalize on it, taking to 59 minutes to come anywhere near the goal when Rafael Van Der Vaart fired well wide from distance.
The home side had a much better chance on the counter attack, following a poor free-kick by Blackburn, a moment later. Van Der Vaart played in Aaron Lennon. A one two with the Dutchman allowed Gareth Bale to come free on the edge of the penalty area, but the Welshman dragged his shot wide of Paul Robinson's goalmouth.
To be perfectly honest, the second half was incredibly dull for long periods, which you could forgive the home side's fans for becoming impatient with the play which was served up to them. That was until the 75th minute when England right-back Kyle Walker hit an absolutely world class goal.
A free-kick was awarded around 30-yards out, maybe more, and up stepped Walker to send a curling strike, hit with power and precision beyond a helpless Robinson. Certainly worth watching for wherever you get your highlights from.
The rest of the game continued at it's strolling pace, with Blackburn looking like a beaten side and like they simply wanted to get on the bus back to Lancashire as soon as possible. They now face a bit of a mountain to climb if they are are to stay in the Premier League this season, while Spurs move back into fourth position on goal difference.
