Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has called on his misfiring strikers to rediscover their shooting boots in the Premier League top-four fight.
Spurs could move up to third in the table if they win at Blackpool on Tuesday night, which represents a game in hand over Manchester City.
But despite Tottenham's heroics in the UEFA Champions League this season, Redknapp has already claimed that it would be a 'miracle' if his side once again finish in the top four.
Redknapp, though, does think that repeating the achievement of 2009/10 would become more realistic if strikers Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko contributed more league goals.
Having seen the trio score a measly combined total of seven goals in 56 league appearances, Spurs' manager said: "It would make a massive difference to us if the front-men went on a run and started scoring goals in the Premier League.
"We're going from the San Siro to Blackpool, but the players need to have the same mindset."
Redknapp added: "We need Defoe to perform his usual trick, go on one of those little spells and get us eight or nine goals between now and the end of the season.
"And we need Crouch and Pav to weigh in with a few goals in the Premier League as well. That could make all the difference."
