FA Cup Recap: Rochdale earn late draw, force replay against Tottenham

Spurs equalise at Newport County

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted his side had suffered "a hard day" after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Rochdale in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday.

Pochettino also admitted that he was not surprised by how Rochdale played.

But there was still time for one more twist which means Spurs are facing a Wembley replay for the second round in a row, having needed two games to end fourth-tier strugglers Newport County's FA Cup run.

"I was conscious about the FA Cup, the football and the image that we are going to sell, but the care for the players, too". We always felt we had an opportunity, Stevo (Steven Davies) is an unbelievable finisher and we deserved that today.

"The conditions are fantastic so I congratulate them".

Meanwhile Rochdale chairman Chris Dunphy said: "I was on the pitch last (Thursday) night, it's like a snooker table".

TV host and former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker said on Twitter that pundits Alan Shearer and Jermaine Jenas had told him they thought Alli had been fouled by Harrison McGahey.

"It all got a bit blown out of proportion".

The goal was Henderson's seventh in the Emirates FA Cup for Rochdale this season. It's like showing somebody a picture of a bowl of curry and asking them what it tastes like.

"Until you actually get out there, you wouldn't know what it was like".

However, the home side wasn't finished.

"I don't think we were used to the pitch", explained Hill. I think it's not important the level of the team. Pochettino's team will have no trouble beating The Dale and we expect Spurs to put on a rampant display.

"It was magnificent the way that we took the game to the opponents".

Spurs, who will head to the humble surroundings of the Crown Oil Arena only days after securing a spirited comeback draw against Juventus in the Champions League, required a replay to progress to the fifth round.

Pochettino has named a completely different starting lineup to the side in Turin, with Son Heung-min and Harry Winks coming into the side, while Luca Moura makes his first start in the white and blue of Spurs.
