Up for the cup

Harry Redknapp is determined to maintain our excellent recent form when we face Liverpool in the Carling Cup at the Lane tonight.

It's four wins and a draw in all competitions since Harry took over as manager - form that has seen us climb off the bottom of the Barclays Premier League and get our UEFA Cup campaign back on track.

Now it's his first domestic cup game in charge as we face the title-chasing Reds in a fourth round tie just 10 days after beating them 2-1 in the league at the Lane.

That was their only defeat in 19 games in all competitions this season.

"You want to win every game," said Harry as he prepared the lads at Spurs Lodge this week. "I'm sure it will be a terrific game and we're in great form at the moment, so we want to keep that going.

"We have this big game against Liverpool and then another big game at Fulham on Saturday. That will be another great game. I'm sure we'll fill up an end at Fulham and that will be a great atmosphere as well."

Rafa Benitez has already confirmed that Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane won't travel with the Reds' squad to the Lane.

"Rafa will make one or two changes but whoever travels will be quality players," added Harry. "They have quality throughout their club - the likes of Sami Hyppia and Jermaine Pennant haven't been playing every week, but then again Torres might play, we'll have to wait and see.

"I will look to make one or two changes as well, for sure, but it will still be a strong team."

TICKET LATEST...

Supporters wishing to purchase tickets for tonight's Carling Cup match against Liverpool are advised that tickets can now only be purchased in person from the Paxton Road Ticket Office.

Remaining tickets are priced at £53 and £49 in the West Stand and East Stand.

Only a limited number of tickets are available so please visit the Ticket Office as early as possible to purchase tickets.

Any supporters that have purchased tickets in the last 48 hours and are collecting their tickets prior to the match are advised to arrive as early as possible as a number of late bookings mean that the collection windows in Paxton Road will be very busy.

Tickets can be collected at any point throughout the day.
