Win well deserved - Harry

Harry Redknapp felt we were well worthy of our 2-0 win against Fulham at the Lane on Tuesday night.

Peter Crouch took advantage of some great work by Luka Modric to open the scoring after 27 minutes and David Bentley, back in the starting line-up, curled home a deflected free-kick to secure the points on the hour.

Fulham's organisation and sheer workrate made it tough for us to create chances but we controlled possession and the visitors rarely threatened at the other end.

The win maintained our fourth position in the Barclays Premier League and it was a good night all-round as Liverpool were held to a goalless draw at Wolves.

"Three points was the main thing tonight," said Harry. "We've had a couple of games here that we've dominated but we've come up against goalkeepers in great form.

"We well deserved the win. We dominated the game. Fulham had a bit of pressure late on but our goalkeeper didn't have too much to do. It was nice to get the win and we're in a great position. It was a great result for us."

Harry said he was delighted for 'Bents', who was making his first start since December 1. "I was well pleased for David," added Harry. "He gave a good performance and he can play, he's a talented footballer and he showed that.

"He was excellent here against Everton, he scored a similar goal against Wigan and it was great to see him score."

Meanwhile, Harry revealed that Niko Kranjcar missed the game through illness and that goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes needed a painkilling injection at half-time after injuring his right shoulder in making a brave save from Bobby Zamora early in the first half.

"It wasn't looking good at half-time but he had the injection and carried on," said Harry.
