After a spirited effort from an in-form Stevenage side, Tottenham Hotspur survived an FA Cup scare at the Lamex Stadium and avoided an upset against the League One side yesterday.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was first to suggest his side were not up to scratch following last weekends 5-0 demolishing of Newcastle, but the favourite for the England job still took a positive outlook on the match.

“We’re still in the cup, we’re at home now and that gives us a big chance. But we won’t underestimate them, by any means," said Redknapp.

"We competed well without being able to play the football that we normally play.

“It wasn’t the day for that. We had to scrap away and in the end, we drew and we’ll have a replay."

With the replay a fortnight away, Spurs fans can look forward to the north London derby on Sunday, with bitter rivals Arsenal looking to be on their last legs after defeat to Sunderland in the fifth round of the Cup.

A victory at the Emirates Stadium would see Redknapp's men move thirteen points clear of the Gunners, and place Spurs back in the title race as they chase Manchester United and Manchester City.

Luka Modric, Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor are set to return to the starting eleven on Sunday, with things looking up for the white side in north London.
