Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admitted his side were very lucky to advance to the fifth round of the FA Cup after edging past Watford at Vicarage Road on Friday night.

After spending all week in Southwark Crown Court this week, Redknapp returned to the dugout to find his Tottenham team in disarray. The Barclays Premier League title chasers put on a woeful display in the first half and only went through thanks to Rafael van der Vaart's fortuitous 30-yard drive just before half-time.

"How we won that game I will never know," said Redknapp. "It's better to be lucky than good sometimes and we were lucky today, that's for sure."
