**Roman Pavlyuchenko sent out a strong message to Harry Redknapp that he wants to stay in the Tottenham side after firing a brace to help his side ease their way into the FA Cup quarter-finals following a 4-0 victory over Bolton.

Tottenham made them pay for their missed opportunities and it was fans favourite Pavlyuchenko who scored the first goal on 23 minutes.

The home side doubled their lead on 34 minutes and it was a goal that Jaaskelainen will not be rushing to watch a replay of.

Tom Huddlestone's ball picked out Wilson Palacios who fired a shot towards goal and Jaaskelainen somehow managed to turn it into his own net.

The second half was only two minutes old when Spurs took a 3-0 lead following another defensive howler from Bolton. O'Brien slid in to meet Bale's left-wing cross at the near post but succeeded only in deflecting it past the helpless Jaaskelainen.

Pavlyuchenko sealed the victory for Spurs when he made it 4-0 with just minutes remaining. The former Spartak Moscow striker was picked out by Danny Rose and he kept his composure to once again beat Jaaskelainen from close range.
