Harry on the attack!

Harry Redknapp will not abandon his attacking approach in tonight's game with Fulham at the Lane - he just hopes the opposing goalkeeper has an off-day for a change!

Harry Redknapp will not abandon his attacking approach in tonight's game with Fulham at the Lane - he just hopes the opposing goalkeeper has an off-day for a change!

Our last two home games have ended in frustrating draws with Hull City and Leeds United despite typically dominant performances from his side.

And much of that has been down to outstanding goalkeeping displays by Boaz Myhill and Casper Ankergren respectively.

Although Harry knows we will have far more than just Mark Schwarzer to deal with against the Cottagers tonight, he still expects his team to be on the offensive in front of our own fans once again.

The manager said: "Fulham are a good side. Roy Hodgson's done a great job with them. They are a well-organised team, so it will be a tough game again.

"We're playing well though. We've just come across two goalkeepers in the last two home games who have had two absolute world-class games.

"Everything we've hit has been saved - miraculous saves, penalty saves - but that's how it goes sometimes. What can you do?

"We look to take three points in every home game and I feel we can beat anyone at home. We'll have a real go at trying to win the game and it won't be through lack of effort or ambition.

"We pick attacking teams and we have a go, that's how we play. We have a go away from home as well - we always look to win."

And although none of our last three games in all competitions have yielded the win Harry craves, he urges fans to be patient with a team he feels is still performing at their best.

He added: "We probably had more chances against Hull than we did in the 9-1 against Wigan - but everything went in against Wigan and everything got stopped against Hull - that's the way it goes some weeks.

"But we're still fourth in the league so we haven't hit a brick wall with only one defeat in 10 - I still feel we are playing very well.

"We played well against West Ham, won at Blackburn and had that good little run over Christmas. We played well against Hull but just didn't get the goals we could have, but I've been delighted with what we've done."
