The Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is desperate for the January transfer window to open after his side failed to find the net for the third game running. Redknapp, whose transfer target Craig Bellamy scored twice for West Ham, may have transformed the club following his arrival back in October, but his side are still languishing just above the bottom three.

Both keepers were outstanding in this stalemate, but Fulham could have won it had Andy Johnson not blown a golden chance right at the end when he was clean through on goal, with Heurelho Gomes making great save. Roy Hodgson's Fulham have now gone eight games unbeaten and must be thinking about a possible European spot. sports@thenational.ae
