No Bolt from the blue

Harry Redknapp only has to turn the clock back to November to underline the tough test ahead against Bolton on Saturday.

Owen Coyle's men were next for us after that famous Champions League win against reigning champions Inter Milan at the Lane on November 2.

Four days after a result and performance that made the rest of Europe sit up and take notice, we were brought crashing back down to earth with a 4-2 defeat at the Reebok Stadium.

Bolton were excellent that day and 3-0 up when late goals from Alan Hutton and Roman Pavlyuchenko gave us hopes of an unlikely comeback. However, we were hit on the break in added time as Bolton secured their victory.

"Bolton are a dangerous side and we know it will be difficult," said Harry.

"They beat us quite convincingly up at the Reebok earlier in the season, so we know how tough it will be.

"Owen Coyle is a fantastic young manager and he know how to get the best out of his players. He's done a great job at Bolton.

"It's up to us to stay focused and put in a performance."
