'Great performance' - Harry

Harry Redknapp was delighted with the team's attitude and application as we toppled Wigan 3-0 at the DW Stadium on Sunday.

Jermain Defoe's opener in the first half and a late double from substitute Roman Pavlyuchenko secured another key away win as we overcame a Wigan team fighting for survival and adapted to a heavy pitch that started cutting up midway through the first half.

It was our fifth victory on the road in the Barclays Premier League this season as we moved back into fourth place on Sunday night.

"The conditions were difficult and I was really pleased with the attitude we showed," said Harry,

"We had to come and grind it out. It was a difficult pitch for both teams, Wigan like to play as well, so it wasn't easy for them either.

"I thought we passed it ever so well in the first half, kept the ball, dominated the play and got our rewards. I thought we were the better team.

"We've been playing well and the only stutter really was Wolves away but credit to them, they played well on the night.

"If you look at our record, it's two defeats in 15 games, so we've been in terrific form and this was another good performance. All the lads played their part."
