Redknapp blames faltering Tottenham form on lack of firepower

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has said his side’s lack of a proven goal scorer has cost them dearly in the battle to finish in the top four of the Premier League and reach next season’s Champions League, the Independent has reported.



Redknapp watched on as Tottenham lost 1-0 to Queens Park Rangers this weekend, Spurs’ fifth defeat in their last 10 league games, and blamed a dearth of forwards for the latest reverse. Redknapp said: “We just had only one striker. I had no one to put up there…I was just looking for somebody.” Jermain Defoe started the match as Tottenham’s lone striker with Rafael van der Vaart in support after Emmanuel Adebayor was ruled out of the contest with a hamstring injury. January signing Louis Saha is also absent because of a groin strain.


Tottenham now find themselves in fifth, three points behind Newcastle United. In their last five games Spurs have found the back of the net five times, but three of those came in the same match, a 3-1 win over Swansea City.
