Spurs boss Redknapp praises stand-in defenders after Villa draw

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp praised his central defenders after their 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.

Michael Dawson seized his opportunity with a fierce strike in the closing stages but Redknapp was also happy with his defensive qualities.

He said: "It was the first time that Michael and Sebastien Bassong have played together and they did well.

"We have two great players in Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King but they do get injuries and we need cover in those positions."
