Redknapp offers no excuses after Spurs defeat

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has no excuses for his team after their defeat to Wolves.

Spurs were beaten by Kevin Doyle's third-minute header and despite their possession, Wolves goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann was not stretched until late in the game when Tom Huddlestone shot towards the top corner.

"We probably didn't create enough chances," admitted Redknapp. "We had loads of the ball, probably about 80 per cent of the ball but it's hard when teams just sit in there. It's hard to break them down and they had no need to come out."

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy said: "Marcus Hahnemann's not been diving around making saves everywhere. I expect my keeper to have to make saves when we go to Spurs.

"I don't care about stats. Somebody told me the other day they had played well on prozone, but do I give a flying about that? No I don't.

"Possession and passes and switching play and really good stuff at times but Marcus made one really good save and no, we haven't been mullered.

"They have to work like that at every game. If we have any passengers we're knackered."
