Tottenham are on their way to Wembley, where they will play Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final after battling past Bolton 3-1 on an emotional night at White Hart Lane.

Bolton had weathered wave after wave of Tottenham attacks, with goalkeeper Adam Bogdan in inspired form, when Ryan Nelsen finally breached the dam with a 74th minute back-post header.

Three minutes later Jermain Defoe teed up Gareth Bale for the second to settle a quarter-final tie that was rearranged following the collapse of Fabrice Muamba in the original fixture nine days ago. Kevin Davies scored a late consolation for Bolton before Louis Saha applied the coup de grace, beating Bogdan from 25 yards with the final kick of the game.
