Harry Redknapp admits Newcastle can play without any pressure until the end of the season after watching the Magpies seize the initiative in the hunt for Champions League qualification on Saturday.

Tottenham's dreadful form sunk to a new low this weekend when they suffered yet another defeat, 1-0 at the hands of 10-man QPR. Newcastle, meanwhile, strolled to their sixth straight Barclays Premier League win against Stoke to move three points clear of Tottenham, who now find themselves out of the top four for the first time since November.

"I don't think there is any pressure on Newcastle," the Tottenham manager said. "What (manager) Alan (Pardew) has done there is fantastic, it's a miracle really. To get them in the position they're in has been a great achievement."
