Rochdale 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Today 06:05 GMT

Tottenham resume their efforts to finish in the Premier League's top four on Monday, 26 February when they face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in a 20:00 GMT kick-off.

Tottenham made 11 changes from the side that fought back to earn a 2-2 draw with Juventus in the Champions League, but the team named by Pochettino still boasted plenty of quality and experience. Spurs, who had not lost to a team from the third tier or below since 1988, were given a fright in the previous round by Newport before reaching the fifth round via a Wembley replay.

Steven Davies stuns Spurs with late goal to secure replay for Rochdale

Today 06:05 GMT

One last punt, one last chance for Rochdale to rescue the Wembley dream that had so cruelly been taken away when Harry Kane converted an 88th minute penalty for Tottenham.

A replay seemed to have been ripped from them when Harrison McGahey tripped Dele Alli late on and Kane, a fellow Tottenham substitute, converted the spot-kick on the ground where he made his professional debut. One of the most financially-stretched clubs in England stretched a team who had competed in the Champions League in midweek to the limit.
