Return to form welcomed by boss
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp feels his team are "coming back strong" at the right time but was never overly concerned about their form.
Spurs retained their slight grip on fourth place in the Barclays Premier League with a 4-1 win at Bolton on Wednesday night. The result was enough to keep them ahead of Newcastle on goal difference and move them within a point of Arsenal above them. With the battle for Champions League qualification spots so tight, Spurs' back-to-back wins over Blackburn and Bolton, after a run of three successive defeats, have been vital. But Redknapp said: "I don't remember having a rough time. I felt we had been playing well. It just went that way for us. We weren't playing badly, we hadn't lost our confidence. It has not been that drastic, but everyone has spells. "Man Utd were eight points clear - league over. Suddenly they get beat at Wigan, draw with Everton get beat by Man City. It happens. That is what makes this game so great, eight points can go like that. You have got to keep at it. Everybody has bad spells during a season. "Arsenal had an horrendous spell but came back strong. We have had a dicky spell, now we are coming back strong. That is what you have to do, you have to keep going."
