Redknapp's side won the game with a late Clint Hill goal and he was pleased with the performance.

He told Sky Sports: "It was another good performance, similar to last week at Bolton. We were solid and earned a clean sheet again.

"It's a tough place to come and I think we deserved the win today.

"I thought the lads were excellent again. At the back we were strong; you win the league with clean sheets if we can defend like that every week.

"Richard Dunne and Nedum Onuoha were outstanding again and Clint Hill popped up at the right time in the right place. The whole performance was good."

Redknapp was quick to heap praise on the new signings he has brought to the club but believes his side still have more to give this season.

He added: "There's a new spirit here. We've made changes, people come and go, and the people I've brought in I wasn't taking a chance with.

"I know Richard Dunne, I tried to sign him five years ago. The chance to get Richard Dunne on a free transfer was a no brainer.

"Gary O'Neil, Danny Simpson, all the other lads who have come in have all been excellent.

"Away from home you have to dig out results. I still feel we can play better, maybe my standards are higher but I still feel there's lots of room for improvement with real quality around the box, how we can be cleverer and open teams up more."

The 66-year-old also confirmed he is still looking to bring players to the club but they must have the similar attitude to the ones he has already recruited.

He said: "We're still looking over the next few days to bring two, three or four more players in that I think could make the difference to us.

"We've not got a big squad; 18 players have left so we need to improve the squad. We have three central defenders on our books so there are still areas we can strengthen and we'll do that in the next few days.

"We are trying. We've got some good targets, not gambles, real good players in my opinion, just like the others I've brought in, all good people who I know I can put my life on."

With talk already surrounding a promotion challenge, Redknapp was quick to play it down.

"It's an excellent start but there's a long way to go. You can only get that early start and that's what we've done but there's an awful long way to go and it's a long road this league," he said.

"I've been here before with Portsmouth, we started like this and managed to stay there. We just need that extra quality to give us strength in depth."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
