All to play for

Harry Redknapp would love to see our fight for a place in Europe go down to the wire with a win over Manchester City in our final home game of the season at The Lane on Saturday.

Fulham currently sit two points clear of their rivals in the all-important seventh spot and travel to Newcastle on Saturday.

Ourselves, West Ham and City make up the chasing pack, and our manager knows we need the three points to keep our push alive.

That would leave us with the mouth-watering prospect of travelling to Anfield to face Liverpool on the final day of the campaign with a chance of securing Europa League football for next season against all the odds.

At today's press conference, Harry said: "Both us and City have a chance of qualifying, although Fulham are in the driving seat with a two-point advantage and better goal difference.

"But we've got it all to play for when we're in this position with two games to go with the chance of qualifying for Europe.

"If we can get a win tomorrow and take it down to the last game, that would be terrific for us."

However, Harry knows we will be facing a City side that has picked up in form in recent weeks, winning three league games on the trot before last weekend's defeat at table-topping Manchester United.

"City have some quality players and are starting to hit some good away form. They had a good result at Everton the other week and they've been a force all year at home," Harry added.

"Mark Hughes has got a good squad there to work with, including quality players like Robinho, Elano, and Stephen Ireland, whose had a great season.

"But we're a good side and our home form has been fantastic. We want to finish the season at home with a win."

Highlights of Harry's press conference will be available on Spurs TV Online today.
