Tottenham boss Redknapp satisfied with Sunderland stalemate

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was satisfied with their 0-0 draw at Sunderland.

Redknapp shrugged off suggestions the pressure might be starting to tell.

Redknapp said: "You've seen teams get in positions where the pressure gets to them but I think we're quite a laid-back bunch and will just get on with it.

"I don't think the players get as uptight as I do or the punters do. We're in a great position and I think we're still in the box-seat. It will come down to who plays best."

Redknapp admitted his frustration at what he believed were negative Sunderland tactics, with his side seldom managing to threaten home goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

Redknapp added: "We started the game well but they sat in and made it difficult. They just said, 'come in and try to break us down', and it was difficult.

"It's difficult when teams don't come out so there isn't a lot of space for us to get in behind them. Having said that I did think we had two or three good chances.

"I came in at half-time and felt it was a game I would be disappointed if we didn't win, but a point is a point after two tough away games in the last week or so."
