Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp insists he's not freezing out Heurelho Gomes.

Gomes was overlooked for Carlo Cudicini in last night's draw at Europa League opponents PAOK Salonika.

"I just thought we'd be better with Carlo tonight and then next Tuesday I'm looking at Gomes to go to Stoke," Redknapp told the Spurs website.

"Carlo was excellent, top-drawer. He's a great trainer and a fantastic professional.

"He's been around and done it all and I was delighted with him.

"Gomes will get his games as well. I'll look to rotate the goalkeepers, but Brad Friedel has the jersey in the Premier League."
