Harry Redknapp is expecting a 'real cup tie atmosphere' when we take on Leeds United in the FA Cup at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

The League One pacesetters and giantkillers of Manchester United in the third round will bring a healthy travelling support for this fourth round clash at the Lane. We kick-off at 5.15pm.

"It's got all the makings of a really good cup tie," said Harry. "They will bring down a fantastic support and I'm sure it will be a real cup tie atmosphere, cut and thrust, with both teams going for it.

"It will be difficult for us. We've watched Leeds' win at Manchester United and they were terrific that day, they played really well.

"So we're not expecting an easy game but if we play as we can, we know we've got a great chance. We feel we're as good as anyone at home."

Harry said immediately after Wednesday night's loss at Liverpool that he wanted the team to quickly move on, starting against Leeds.

"We're looking for another good performance," he added. "Everyone has a blip, we all have days when we get beaten, but it's all about how you pick yourselves up from a defeat and go again. That's what we've got to do.

"We've been on a great run since I've been at the club and we'll now try to get through to the next round.

"Winning is a good habit. We'd love to go to Wembley again this season and we want to finish in the top four. Those are the ambitions of the club. We have to beat Leeds to do that."
