Tottenham survived an early scare to move one step closer to Wembley by beating minnows Stevenage 3-1 in the fifth-round replay at White Hart Lane.

The npower League One side started as huge underdogs but took just two minutes to take the lead through Joel Byrom, who converted from the penalty spot after being upended by Ryan Nelsen.

Jermain Defoe levelled for Spurs and the Barclays Premier League side moved into the last eight thanks to Emmanuel Adebayor's penalty and another well-taken strike from the impressive Defoe.
