Redknapp on alert for Trotters trip

TOTTENHAM manager Harry Redknapp maintains there will be no easy matches in the battles at the top and the bottom of the Premier League table as the season draws to a fascinating conclusion.

On what is sure to be an emotionally-charged night with the return to the Roobok Stadium of Fabrice Muamba, following his collapse in the FA Cup game against Spurs last month, the visitors face a side just as desperate for points in their fight to stay in the top flight.

Redknapp - overlooked for the England job this week - knows full well what to expect at the Reebok Stadium tonight.

"Bolton away is always tough," he said. "We've been there enough times over the years and it's always a difficult place to go.

"They are playing well, Owen (Coyle, manager) has got them going at the moment. It will be a hard game but we've got to go there and be positive."

Redknapp is not taking fourth place for granted - in fact, he is as prepared for his side dropping down to fifth as the Spurs boss is for pipping north London rivals Arsenal to third.

"You can't predict results," he said. "Manchester United had an eight-point lead after (Manchester) City got beat at Arsenal, you thought that was the end of them, you thought it was all over. You just can't tell.

"You look at Wigan. They had to go to Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, play United, Newcastle, five of the top six, and they go on this incredible run. You just can't predict results.

"You never know. You just have to keep going.

"Newcastle have three tough games, for sure. Chelsea might have the best fixtures. We have to keep going and if we play well, we can do it (third)."
