White Hart Lane
Reading travel to White Hart Lane, a week after the bizarre 6-4 defeat in the league. The Royals will take a weakened side to the Lane, as Steve Coppell continues his policy of picking fringe players for cup games.
Royals star Dave Kitson on the FA Cup;
'I don`t give two sh**s about it to be honest. All I care about is staying in the Premier League. That`s what everybody at this club cares about.'
Jamie O'Hara's contrasting view on the Cup;
'It`s always been a dream of mine to play at Wembley in an FA Cup Final for Spurs, so if we do well this year, you never know'.
Younes Kaboul and striker Darren Bent are both doubtful.
Ledley King is again fit to play while Pascal Chimbonda, Paul Stalteri and Teemu Tainio are back in training.
Scored four goals in last weeks game between the two side. Will again be a constant threat.
Reading boss Steve Coppell is likely to field practically an entirely different side to the one that lost at the Lane a week ago.
Leroy Lita and Adam Federici will both start and summer signing Emerse Fae will be hoping for a rare appearance.
The England Under-21 international has fallen down the pecking order at the Madejski Stadium recently and he will be hungry for a chance to prove himself.
The obvious one; the last meeting between the two sides finished 6-4 to Spurs, despite Reading leading three times.
The last time the two sides met in the FA Cup was way back in 1929 at Elm Park, Reading won the game 2-0.
Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)
Even though it's going to be a Reading reserve side, they shouldn't be written off, cast your minds back to their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last season. Although I'm not expecting a repeat of last week, I still think there's going to be goals. My prediction: Spurs 2-1 Reading
