Harry's word of warning

Harry Redknapp believes we will need to be at our best tonight if we are to get past Watford and book our place in the Carling Cup semi-finals.

We travel to Vicarage Road hoping to reach the last four of the competition for the third season in a row, but the gaffer knows The Hornets will make it difficult for us.

Led by new manager Brendan Rodgers and assistant Frank Lampard Snr, Harry's brother-in-law, the Championship side will no doubt see a home clash with Spurs as a great opportunity to make a name for themselves.

And Harry also expects our opponents to vary their style to adapt to coming up against a Premier League outfit - just as they did when they defeated West Ham in the third round.

"I'm told Brendan is a terrific young coach and Frank has gone in to help him so I am sure they will be a good footballing team," said Harry.

"It will take a while for him perhaps to get them playing as he wants them to play but it will be a tough game.

"They've knocked West Ham out in one of the earlier rounds so it will be a tough, tough game there is no doubt about that.

"They will be a different team to what you see playing in the league every week. They will raise their game massively. Remember, Watford were a Premier League club not too long ago."

On coming up against Frank for the first time during his football career, Harry added: "It will be strange because we've always been together. I will speak to him beforehand."
