Tottenham 2-0 Bolton Highlights

New Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp had an immediate galvanising effect on Spurs as they beat Bolton to secure their first league win of the season.

David Bentley’s pin-point cross was met by Roman Pavlyuchenko to give Spurs the lead midway through the first half.

After the break, Bolton midfielder Gavin McCann was sent off for two bookable offences.

Darren Bent wrapped up the victory from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.

The victory was Tottenham’s first at home since they beat Redknapp’s former employers Portsmouth in March and helped lift the gloom that has engulfed White Hart Lane prior to the 61-year-old’s arrival, despite the club remaining bottom of the table.

Redknapp was installed as the club’s manager late on Saturday after Ramos was sacked a couple of days shy of his first anniversary at White Hart Lane and he had an immediate impact as he took his place in the home dugout.
