Praise for Pav

Harry Redknapp revealed that Roman Pavlyuchenko showed signs in training in the build-up to Wigan that he was ready to burst back onto the goalscoring scene.

The Russian striker did just that with two late goals to secure a 3-0 win at the DW Stadium on Sunday.

'Pav' entered the fray for fellow goalscorer Jermain Defoe in the 74th minute and was celebrating 10 minutes later after finishing well from Luka Modric's pass.

He did it again from a tight angle in the third minute of injury time as we collected another three vital points on our travels in the Barclays Premier League - we're fourth after Sunday's results.

"He trained well this week and, for me, he was the best player in training on Thursday and Friday," said Harry.

"He worked hard, showed a great attitude and it was great to see him come off the bench and score twice.

"Technically, he's a top-class player with great quality and he will always score goals.

"I said to him 'go out there and show us what you've been doing in training' and he did that. He was excellent."
