Spurs return to winning ways

Tottenham recorded a much-needed 2-0 Premier League win over Blackburn on Sunday at White Hart Lane.

The hosts were dominant throughout, with Rovers not having a single shot on or off goal in the 90 minutes, and a goal in each half from Rafael van der Vaart and Kyle Walker secured victory for the north London outfit.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was pleased with the victory and has challenged his side to win their remaining three fixtures in the race for fourth place.

“We’ve got to win our games – it’s going to be close, it’s going to be tight. I mean, we’ve got two really hard away games I think this week,” he told Sky Sports.

“Bolton are in good form and they’re fighting for their lives and then we go to Villa who still need a result, probably, so they’re tough games.

“Then Fulham at home, that’s a very difficult game so we’ve just got to see how we go.

“We’ve just got to keep trying to win the games and if we win all the games, no-one can finish above us, really. That’s the top and bottom of it.

“We’ve got a much better goal average than Newcastle. But we’ve got to win the games. Chelsea are looking very dangerous, they’re in fantastic form, but we’ll see how we go,” he stated.
