Harry calls for more goals

20 February 2010 12:09
Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has challenged his misfiring players to hammer Wigan Athletic in their Premier League clash at the DW Stadium on Sunday. The former Portsmouth boss watched in amazement as his side pummelled the Latics earlier in the season at White Hart Lane and he wants his front men to get back to that type of form. The fans were in for a treat back in November when Spurs they beat Roberto Martinez's men 9-1 - with Jermain Defoe scoring five - but they have scored just once in their last three league fixtures. Despite the poor return, they remain in contention for a Champions League place as they sit in sixth position, just two points behind Manchester City in the elusive fourth spot. Before Christmas, Spurs were scoring freely but they have found goals hard to come back in recent times. Redknapp said: "We were scoring plenty of goals at that time and not conceding goals, now for the last few weeks we've struggled to score as many as we were. "We're still not letting many in but we're not converting the chances we've created recently. But it will turn again." Meanwhile, he has offered striker Roman Pavlyuchenko a life-line, suggesting he could figure in one of the three games they have this week. "We have three games this week and there is every chance he'll start one of those games at least, he's back in the frame," he added. "No one wants to see him score goals more than me. If he scored eight to ten between now and the end of the season no one will be happier than me."
