Dimitar Berbatov scored his first goal at White Hart Lane since leaving Tottenham as Fulham won 1-0 Sunday to hurt Spurs' bid to qualify for the Champions League. The Bulgarian striker, who scored 46 goals for Tottenham from 2006-08, declined to celebrate after finding the net in the 52nd minute with a mis-hit shot that flew past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Berbatov's fourth goal in his past five matches gave Fulham its first win at White Hart Lane in 10 years and means Tottenham will drop a place to fourth should Chelsea beat West Ham later. It was the first victory at the ground for Fulham manager Martin Jol since being fired as Spurs boss in 2007. Tottenham played 120 minutes Thursday before advancing past Inter Milan in the Europa League.
