Business as usual for Tottenham with boss Redknapp on trial

Tottenham assistant boss Kevin Bond reckons boss Harry Redknapp's absence has had little impact on the club as they prepare for Friday's FA Cup game against Watford. Redknapp has not been able to take a training session this week as he has been at Southwark Crown Court contesting two counts of cheating the public revenue.

The 64-year-old will return to the dugout when he takes charge of the fourth-round clash at Vicarage Road.

"Clearly the manager is not here but very little (has changed) really," Bond told a news conference. "The training carries on pretty much as normal and everybody has been getting on with things as normal so there's not really a lot of difference except obviously Harry is not here during the day.

"We had a similar scenario a few weeks ago when Harry had a small (heart) procedure done and he wasn't here for a week or so leading up to the Fulham game."
