Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham Hotspur were unfortunate not to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers after Mick McCarthy’s men held Spurs to a 1-1 at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Steven Fletcher bundled home to give the visitors the lead mid-way through the first half but Tottenham equalised six minutes after the interval when Luka Modrić scored from 25 yards.

Redknapp felt Spurs had chances to snatch victory but the 64-year-old manager was quick to praise to Wolves’ resolute defending.

“I thought we played well, the lads gave everything,” said Redknapp. “We went one down and it was always going to be tough. Wolves are scrapping for their lives and they worked hard, pressed us all over the park.

“In the second half we came back, got the goal and I thought we’d win from there. We battered away but couldn’t get one to drop for us. I thought we played some great stuff and the lads couldn’t have worked any harder than they did.

“Wolves went to Arsenal the other week and drew as well and they made it difficult, the same way West Brom was difficult, Sunderland and Everton, all difficult games.

“You won’t win every week, that’s been proved. You only have to look at the results over the Christmas period, amazing results.

“There will be a few hiccups along the way but when you don’t win, you have to make sure you don’t lose. In the end, it’s a point. We wanted three, but it wasn’t to be.”
