Gomes earns Redknapp praise

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp praised goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes for his starring role in the goalless draw at Fulham. The Brazilian made a number of fine saves to deny the Cottagers, again showing that he is back to the sort of form which earned him a move to England from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2008. Redknapp commented: "Gomes did well. Fulham were dangerous when they got it forward to Bobby Zamora early and Gomes made a couple of good saves. "But so did Mark Schwarzer - Peter Crouch's shot in the second half was in all the way. I thought it was a fair point. "Gomes has improved. He was short of confidence when I first came here last year, but he's back to what everyone said he was before I came to the club. "People told me in Holland what a great keeper he was and he's showing it now. That's three clean sheets on the spin and that's important."
