Tottenham boss Redknapp in a spot of bother!

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has admitted he needs to find a solution to his side's penalty taking malaise. Jermain Defoe was taken off spot-kick duties after being denied by Casper Ankergren during last month's FA Cup draw with Leeds.

Tom Huddlestone stepped up in Sunday's fifth round clash at the Reebok Stadium but Bolton keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen saved.

The manager now plans to have a rethink about who should take Tottenham's next penalty.

"I need to find someone who can handle the pressure of putting it away from the spot," he said in The Sun.

"If we'd scored I think it would have been game over.

"But we have a habit of missing penalties at the moment and it's becoming a bit disturbing."
