Tottenham Hotspur v Rochdale: Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round Replay, Wembley Stadium, Wednesday 28th February, 7.45pm Kick-Off

Rochdale make only their second trip to Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night, almost ten years after their first, to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Emirates FA Cup fifth round replay.

Steven Davies’ equaliser in added time just over a week ago sparked wild celebrations at the Crown Oil Arena, and earned Dale a deserved replay against one of the Premier League’s elite.

Ian Henderson’s goal on the stroke of half-time was cancelled out by Lucas Moura, before Harry Kane’s penalty looked to have knocked Keith Hill’s side out of the competition.

However, Dale didn’t give up, and when Davies fired into the bottom corner in the 93rd minute, Dale’s Wembley dream came true once again.
