Good point - Harry

Harry Redknapp declared himself happy with a point after our Boxing Day stalemate at Fulham.

Heurelho Gomes was in fine form as our defence kept another clean sheet - a third on the trot in the Barclays Premier League - but Mark Schwarzer in the home goal made the save of the day, a double-save to deny Peter Crouch and then Jermaine Jenasn in the second half.

The Cottagers, fresh from a 3-0 win against Manchester United last weekend, also hit the crossbar in the first half with Gomes' best save to claw away Bobby Zamora's header after 70 minutes.

"Gomes did well but I also thought we had a lot of good possession," said Harry at Craven Cottage. "Their goalkeeper also made a great save from Crouchy, that looked in all the way, so it's a fair point for us.

"The pitch was a bit difficult, a bit bobbly, so it was difficult to ping the ball around and pass it as we normally do. We didn't get the passing going in the first half but in the second I thought we better. Overall, I think we had enough of the game to deserve a point.

"We've now had three clean sheets on the trot against City, Blackburn and Fulham. We all want to go out and score goals and we're very open, that's the way we play, but that's important as well.

"Fulham beat United 3-0 last week and Craven Cottage is always a tough place to come. We beat City at home, Blackburn away and now a point at Fulham - I'd have taken seven points from those three games, for sure."

Meanwhile, Harry reported that Sebastien Bassong was fine after taking a kick to the head late in the game, forcing him off in injury time.
