Last night’s return to winning ways at Ewood Park was welcomed by all concerned at Tottenham.
Harry Redknapp played two main strikers for the first time anyone could remember, with Rafael van der Vaart dropping back into midfield. After 3 minutes the change paid off with Peter Crouch heading home, what proved to be the winner.

William Gallas was a rock at the back and despite an early trademark punch/flap, Heurelho Gomes made some crucial saves to secure the three points.
The win sees Spurs take a grip on fifth place at least, three points behind fourth placed Chelsea and five points behind Man City, over whom we have a game in hand. Here’s the highlights:
