Harry's praise for lads

Harry Redknapp was impressed with a number of the players after the 2-0 win against Fulham.

Peter Crouch and David Bentley hit the goals that maintained our fourth position in the Barclays Premier League after a tough encounter at the Lane on Tuesday.

'Bents' made his first start since December 1. "He took his oppportunity well," said Harry. "It's up to him, but when he plays like that he has every chance of playing.

"When you're not in the team you get down and I suppose that's what happened. He's been disappointed but because Aaron Lennon's done so well it's been hard for him. He showed a great attitude.

"Luka Modric was outstanding on the other side," Harry continued. "He's a fantastic footballer, a world-class player.

"Tom Huddlestone passed well, Wilson Palacios played well and Ledley King strolled through it. What a player he is. He doesn't train and comes out and plays, he's just an amazing footballer.

"It was good for Gareth Bale to start in a winning team as well. He's a great lad and he's been in terrific form.

"I was pleased with them. When you have a setback like we did against Leeds at the weekend it's not easy. The win puts us right in there - all you can do is keep picking up points."
