Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits the club has been lifted by news of Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba's recovery.

Redknapp hopes the positive news coming from the London Chest Hospital concerning Muamba will allow focus to return to football on tonight against Stoke City.

"I spoke to (Bolton manager) Owen Coyle (on Monday night), and he said they had had as good a day as could have been expected," said Redknapp, who revealed Stoke manager Tony Pulis had offered support to postpone Wednesday's game if deemed necessary.

"There is still a long way to go, but things are moving in the right direction and we will keep our fingers crossed for the boy.

"All the lads are buoyed by the news which has come through, things have obviously picked up.

"We had people come in (on Monday), but the lads are fine at the moment."
