Harry Redknapp's side were caught cold early on at White Hart Lane as former Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi scored two first-half goals.

A hugely inexperienced Chelsea XI went down 5-1 at Wycombe.

Jon-Paul Pittman was the star of the night at Adams Park as he scored a four-minute hat-trick.
