Spurs face uncertain Cup fate after Rochdale revival

Spurs face uncertain Cup fate after Rochdale revival

"The performance deserved at least the opportunity to go to Wembley in a replay", Hill added.

"They always want to show too much and sometimes when the players are thinking they need to show why they are here they start not behaving in a natural way and they make mistakes".

KEITH HILL'S Rochdale are looking to produce an upset in the fifth round of this year's FA Cup as they host Tottenham Hotspur in a battle to cease a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

"They say it's every kid's dream (to play at Wembley) and we have done enough to go there", Davies told the BBC, before saying of his equaliser: "I've done my job, it's dropped to me and I've finished it".

Spurs had earlier rallied back from a goal down and looked to be heading through when Harry Kane drilled home a penalty on 88 minutes after Dele Alli was fouled in the box.

"I was not surprised".

No player has scored more than Henderson's six FA Cup goals this season and the former Norwich striker thought the third-tier side were well worth their famous result.

"After the replay against Newport, I was with my coaching staff and they showed me a picture from Rochdale's pitch after their (fourth-round) tie against Millwall and it was not in a great condition. We took the opposition on and we know how good they are", Hill, who nearly lost his flat cap in the delirious scenes following Davies's equaliser, said.

"I won't hold it against him and if he does it for England in the summer and we win the World Cup I will certainly be supporting him".

"This type of game is so hard and we have to be careful how we assess the performance".

"We have all the squad fit and it will be another game to provide players with the chance to compete on Wembley and we have the possibility to reach the quarter finals".

Spurs failed to beat Newport County in the previous round away from home and had to wait for the replay to get the better of their Welsh opponents. "If they find a way in the VAR that the VAR is always right and always bring the truth, I'm happy".
