Phillips has had a slow start to pre-season following his stomach operation, but proved that he is near peak fitness with a goal in his first match of the summer.
The former Watford man scored the only goal of the game on 10 minutes, converting a Thomas Butler cross, with Sunderland having most of the play.
Spurs suffered a shock reverse at Division Two QPR. Glenn Hoddle`s men never recovered from going 2-0 down, but the encouraging aspect of the match for the White Hart Lane outfit was the 90-minute effort by Stephen Carr.
The Republic of Ireland full back missed the World Cup due to injury, but he showed he is on the way back with a solid display.
