Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes that his side can secure a top-four finish in the Premier League by winning all of their four remaining matches.
 
Spurs' poor run continued with a 1-0 defeat away to QPR, which allowed Newcastle to move up into fourth, three points ahead of Redknapp's men.
 
Although the London club have won only one game in nine matches in the league, Redknapp has called for his players to take 12 points from the four remaining fixtures, to give them a chance of securing the final Champions League spot.
 
"We've got four games left and we need 12 points. That's how I see it. We have to win next week against Blackburn and that won't be easy as they are fighting for their lives. 
 
"It could all change again. Chelsea are playing well, Newcastle have done well, Arsenal go to Stoke. We'll wait and see."
 
Winning all of their remaining fixtures may not be enough to secure fourth spot should Newcastle win all their games.
 
However, Redknapp expects there to be 'twists and turns' as the Premier League season draws to a conclusion.
 
"There will be more twists and turns, we've got to win our last four games and it will be difficult, but we're capable of doing that," he continued. "We're not giving up. We've still got a big chance."
 
Blackburn, Bolton, Aston Villa and Fulham make up Spurs' remaining fixtures as they push to earn a place in next season's Champions League.
