Tottenham Hotspur 2
- Crouch 27,
- Bentley 60
David Bentley enjoyed a rare night of success to help Tottenham Hotspur hold on to fourth place in the Premier League.
Goals from Peter Crouch and David Bentley eased Tottenham to a 2-0 win over Fulham at White Hart Lane.
Spurs deservedly took the lead in the 27th minute when England striker Crouch tapped home a Luka Modric cross.
The home side dominated proceedings but were denied by Mark Schwarzer in the Fulham goal.
That result meant Spurs are now a clear victory ahead of the team from Merseyside, who are fifth and continuing to struggle for consistency.
Fulham, for their part, suggested only intermittently that they might deny Redknapp's men three points, a haul they had not managed since 28 December, when West Ham were defeated here.
Fulham rarely threatened the Spurs goal and took 50 minutes to have a shot on target.
The win sees Tottenham move three points clear in fourth place in the Premier League table. Fulham remain in ninth.
Fulham: Schwarzer, Hughes, Hangeland, Smalling, Baird, Riise (Davies 64), Dikgacoi, Murphy, Gera (Kamara 72), Duff, Zamora (79 Elm).
Tottenham: Gomes, Corluka, Dawson, King, Bale, Bentley, Huddlestone, Palacios, Modric, Crouch, Defoe (Keane 82).
