The Baggies chief watched as defender Craig Dawson made amends for scoring a scrappy first-half own goal to equalise 17 minutes from time at White Hart Lane on Monday.

Pulis felt it was a vastly improved display from last Thursday’s 2-0 defeat at Arsenal and was also happy to give league leaders Leicester a push towards their first ever title, as the draw leaves them seven points clear of Spurs with just three games remaining.

He said: “I’m really pleased with the players. We lack a bit of quality at times but I canÂ’t fault their work-rate and they work within a shape that suits them.”

On Leicester, he added: “I just want them to win it. Leicester is such a wonderful story and I donÂ’t think it can happen anywhere else but in this country.

“What Leicester can do is dig results out and thatÂ’s what theyÂ’ve done. I just think itÂ’s a wonderful, wonderful story. But they still have a lot of work to do.”

Pulis also praised Tottenham for their impressive season and has urged Mauricio Pochettino’s side not to give up their pursuit of Leicester.

He said: “Tottenham are a fantastic team and their future is bright. Something that has not been said is that Tottenham have played a lot of games on a Thursday night, and playing Thursday then Sunday is difficult and where they are now is a fantastic achievement.

“I know they will be disappointed but they still have a chance, Leicester still have to get the points and Tottenham are capable of winning all three games.”
