Harry happy with point

Harry Redknapp declared himself satisfied with a point from Saturday's goalless draw against Everton.

In a game of few chances, we had the best of the first half while Everton slowly pushed us back after the break.

Jermain Defoe went closest for us with a shot that flashed just wide in the 70th minute while Tim Cahill went close and Dan Gosling struck the post for the home side.

"If you come to Everton and get a point you are never disappointed," said Harry. "It's such a tough place to play.

"I felt we dominated in the first half. We passed the ball much better than Everton, we had much more possession and had the best of the opportunities.

"In the second half, Everton came back into it and got on top without creating too many chances."

The draw moved us up to eighth on Saturday night. Fulham are two points clear in seventh on 50 points after beating Villa while West Ham are ninth on goal difference after losing 3-0 to Liverpool.
