Redknapp hails Portsmouth matchwinner Kranjcar

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp was delighted with matchwinner Niko Kranjcar after victory over West Ham.

Redknapp, who celebrated Pompey's 21st clean sheet of the season, added: "Niko's an outstanding footballer, real class. You all saw the goals he scored against England and Scotland for Croatia.

"Although we were without Diarra who had a dead leg, and Jermain Defoe who has gone to his nan's funeral, we found a system that suits us. I think it is our 13th away win in all competitions this season.

"West Ham will be okay. They are 10th despite a lot of injuries and it's much better than last season for them. they have a strong squad.

"I took West Ham to fifth spot once when I was here and it would be nice to do the same with Portsmouth.

"We've come a long way in the last few years. I've come back three times here and won now and the buzz is still as great."
