Harry's Euro vision

Harry Redknapp is looking forward with excitement to his first European game in charge of the team tomorrow night.

The gaffer knows all about the tradition of great European nights at The Lane, and he expects no different when we take on Dinamo Zagreb in this UEFA group match.

Harry knows we will be in for a tough game but has called on the fans as well as his own team's fighting spirit to not give the Croatian champions a moment's rest once the first whistle blows.

"European nights at The Lane can be special," said Harry. "The Club has a great tradition of European football and the atmosphere should be fantastic as always.

"If we get a result here, it sets us up nicely in the group, and having lost the first game, this is especially important.

"Dinamo are a dangerous team. Having looked at the videos, they've got some good players, and like all Croatian teams, they can play.

"We can't let them settle into a steady passing routine, we have to put them under pressure and play the game at our tempo."

Giovani Dos Santos has been ruled out of the clash with an ankle injury, while Jermaine Jenas is also a doubt with the toe injury that forced him out of Saturday's win over Liverpool.

Jamie O'Hara misses the game through suspension, and both Roman Pavlyuchenko and Vedran Corluka are cup-tied.

Harry added: "Gio picked up an ankle injury in training the other day, which is a big setback for him.

"We can't put a time limit on it but he certainly won't be available for the forthcoming matches. JJ is also still struggling with his toe."
