Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp was delighted by his side's 2-1 victory at Hull City, a win which boosted their hopes of escaping the threat of relegation. A late Jonathan Woodgate header secured victory at the KC Stadium and lifted Spurs five points above the drop zone, with Redknapp now able to rest a bit more easily. He told the club's official website: "We've got to make sure we stay in the Premier League and this was a huge step towards doing that. "It is a massive result. It puts us in a much better position and keeps Hull in the relegation battle. "I thought we were terrific in the second half. We came out and we upped the pace. "They made it difficult for us in first half, they got in our faces and they worked hard, they worked their socks off and they were always a big threat on set-plays. "That was the big fear, but in the second half I thought we got the ball down, passed it well, created some terrific chances and were the better team. "If Hull would have won, they would have almost been out of it and we would have been right in it even more. "That result now gives us confident for the rest of the week."
