Harry Redknapp has praised David Bentley for his performances in the last couple of games.
Bentley was expected to be ushered out of White Hart Lane in the January transfer window, after falling out of favour and showing a poor attitude.
However, with Aaron Lennon picking up a groin injury, he has been thrust into the first team and produced good performances against Fulham and Birmingham City.
Redknapp has insisted the door was never closed on his Tottenham career and is pleased with how Bentley has responded in recent games.
“He has been in good form.
“He has come in the last two games and done very well for me. He’s important to me.
“Aaron’s not fit and David’s got to make that position his own.”
