Loss frustrates Redknapp

Harry Redknapp admitted Tottenham Hotspur did not perform well enough in the final third to take anything from Saturday's surprise 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves. Kevin Doyle scored the crucial winner to help Wolves move out of the bottom three and put a huge dent in Tottenham's Champions League aspirations. Doyle netted the only goal of the game after just three minutes with a close-range header to give Wolves their first victory at White Hart Lane since 1973. "We probably didn't create enough chances," admitted Redknapp. "We had loads of the ball, probably about 80 per cent, ball but it's hard when teams just sit in there. It's hard to break them down and they had no need to come out. "The better reputation you get as a team, the more teams go away from home and make it difficult for you. "If you're going to be a top team you have to find a way of breaking them down. That's what the top teams do but we just couldn't unlock the door." Meanwhile, Spurs full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto could find himself in trouble after allegations of a spat with a fan at full-time. The Cameroon international had to be shepherded down the tunnel by assistant manager Joe Jordan. "We are aware of the incident and we are investigating," said a Spurs spokesperson. "The police are speaking to everyone involved."
