Tottenham take on Stevenage at White Hart Lane tonight for their FA Cup replay with a place in the quarter finals is at stake. 

The League One side held Spurs to a 0-0 draw at the Lamex Stadium last month and with it earned themselves a lucrative replay at the Lane.

Unsurprisingly Tottenham go into the match as heavy favourites, but Harry Redknapp will be wary not to underestimate their opponents and will call for full focus from his players tonight.

Team News

Tottenham welcome back Scott Parker from suspension and it’s expected he will come straight back in to the side. Gareth Bale is also set to return after the Welshman missed the weekend defeat to Manchester United through illness.

Rafael van der Vaart is also pushing for a start but William Gallas will require a late fitness test. Louis Saha will miss the game with a knee complaint.

It is expected that Harry Redknapp may take this opportunity to rotate some of his team, with Carlo Cudicini, Dany Rose, Michael Dawson and Jermain Defoe all likely to start.

Predicted Score

Back on home turf after struggling to cope with the pitch conditions at the Lamex, Tottenham should ease their way into the quarter finals. They have never lost three games in a row under Redknapp, and we don’t expect that to change tonight. Tottenham 3-0 Stevenage.

      Because Bale, Parker, Defoe did not start in previous game. Better to get game in bag EARLY, and THEN haul senior guys off. But I agree that Livermore has earned chance to back up decent performance vs Man U.

      Also, tonight’s game is a must win game too. I am not normally too into the FA Cup, but after 2 defeats, let’s not make it 3 – AND against a lower division club that we couldn’t beat in 2 attempts. If we were to lose tonight, then that would heap more pressure on the Everton game – and when you are on a losing streak, it normally gets broken by a draw. A win tonight would put us in the right frame of mind for Everton. Besides, only Liverpool & Chelsea are “strong” and left in the FA Cup – it is an opportunity.

    They gave us a good test at their ground but I feel that at the lane we can beat them with a second string team.

      No offence but your a little out of touch. Corluka’s playing in Germany; Carroll’s in Derby (I think;) Bentley will be out for the season.

      I reckon: Cudicini;
      Walker, Dawson, Kaboul, Rose;
      Lennon, Livermore, Sandro, Kranjcar;
      Defoe, Adeybayor
