One of those days - Harry

Harry Redknapp could only join the chorus of praise for Hull goalkeeper Boaz Myhill after Saturday's goalless draw at the Lane.

Myhill made save after save including two doubles from Wilson Palacios and Robbie Keane in the first half, then Luka Modric and Keane in the second half.

He also denied Jermain Defoe in the first half, tipped over Modric's 20-yarder destined for the top corner and capped it all with a point-blank save to turn away Peter Crouch's header in the final minutes.

"We couldn't have done any more," reflected Harry. "The keeper's had an unbelievable day, he may never play like that again in his life. He made some miraculous saves.

"We opened them up, created chances and he came to the rescue with five or six incredible saves.

"It's not as if we're coming away from the game thinking 'we couldn't open them up because of this or because of that', we opened them up but couldn't beat the keeper.

"He made saves that he's not entitled to make. He's had the game of his life and there is nothing we can do about it.

"I go home disappointed but I couldn't have asked for more. It's not as if we didn't create chances or there was lack of effort. We gave it everything and you sit there waiting for the first goal and it's game over, we walk off with three points.

"We just couldn't get that goal - the keeper looked unbeatable."
