Stevenage hold Spurs for cup replay

Published Add your comment

Stevenage defied the odds and put on an impressive display to hold Tottenham to a goalless draw in Sunday afternoon's FA Cup fifth round clash at the Lamex Stadium.

The League One side started the day 47 places below Spurs in the league ladder, but they more than held their own with some dogged tackling and confident passing in midfield.

Carlo Cudicini saved well from Scott Laird's header in the first half and Joel Byrom blasted just over in the second period while Tottenham had a goal ruled out for offside.
