Tottenham have begun practicing their penalties.

Tottenham have begun practicing their penalties.

Tom Huddlestone missed the chance to put Spurs in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup when he missed a penalty against Bolton on Valentine’s Day, and top scorer Jermain Defoe has squandered three spot kicks this season.

But Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is firmly of the opinion penalties should be taken by "whoever fancies it" at that particular time.

Redknapp said: "We have been taking penalties after training sessions, but it’s a different pressure in the game and you can never replicate that."
