Injury-time equaliser earns Rochdale a Wembley replay with Spurs

After coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Juventus in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday, Tottenham made 11 changes to its team on Sunday and was held 2-2 by English third-tier team Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

After being taken to a replay by Newport in the fourth round, Spurs looked like they had avoided that fate at the Crown Oil Arena when substitute Harry Kane scored an 88th-minute penalty to put them 2-1 ahead.

Rochdale were well worth their Wembley pay-day after taking the game to their Premier League opponents and opening the scoring with a well-worked move on the stroke of the half-time only for Lucas Moura to equalise before Spurs took the lead from the spot.

'They say it's every kid's dream (to play at Wembley) and we have done enough to go there, Davies told the BBC, before saying of his equaliser: 'I've done my job, it's dropped to me and I've finished it.

Lucas Moura equalised with his first goal for Spurs on his full debut and the visitors' pressure paid off when Kane converted at the ground where he made his professional debut after Harrison McGahey was adjudged to have fouled Dele Alli. "It's unbelievable", said Henderson. "We always felt we had an opportunity".

Moura added: "The Champions League is the most difficult cup but I think we have the capacity to win it if you always think in positives, always work hard". "The FA Cup is magic". We have another opportunity at Wembley, the same situation like before.

"I don't know how much it is worth but a lot of money has gone into the new pitch", Hill said. 'This competition is completely different.

Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday being forced to play out a replay that neither side wants in front of a sparse crowd is not. Up against the odds with seconds to go and they managed to grab a memorable draw against a Premier League heavyweight.

Spurs' makeshift side took time to find their rhythm and Rochdale snapped into them, Henderson shooting into Michel Vorm's arms after Victor Wanyama coughed up possession in his own half. "I think our game is so handsome that to change we have to change for the better", said Mourinho. I'm so happy. Since August I have not started a game, but I started against Rochdale and I'm so happy.

- In fact, January 1976 was also the last time they avoided defeat to a top-flight side in the FA Cup, when they drew 0-0 with Norwich City.

There is "growing opposition" from some clubs left in the FA Cup to Tottenham's effective home advantage.
