    Time:90'
    • Tottenham Hotspur
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • 90+4 There's the final whistle. Spurs 4-0 Bolton. Spurs will meet Fulham in the quarter-finals on 6 March.
    • 88' GOAL!!! 4-0, and it's Pavlyucheno agsin! Four goals in four days!!! Rose got forward down the right, Pavlyuchenko was left totally free in the area, he had time to take a touch and dance past Knight, before plantng the ball in the back of the net.
    • 85' Dawson makes a fine block from Holden's shot. Bolton are certainly not going out without a fight.
    • 76' Well, to be fair, Bolton are certainly not lying down. Elmander works himself some space and gets in a cross, though it's a poor one. Their work rate has been reasonably good tonight, particularly since the substitutions at the start of the second half, but quality in the final third really has been lacking.
    • 69' Bentley is replaced by Danny Rose for Spurs.
    • 65' Riga is in again after fine work from Holden...but his shot is wayward.
    • 62' Riga now stings the hands of Gomes with a decent low shot! He's been lively since coming on.
    • 61' Moustapha Riga gets onto the end of Elmander's flick on and gets away from Bassong, before flashing a shot across the face of goal.
    • 60' Kranjcar on for Palacios for Spurs.
    • 60' 4-0!!! It's Eidur Godjohnsen...but no...wait, the offside flag is up. A very close call, he looked very close to level. Tidy finish, mind.
    • 57' Huddlestone gets forward now for Spurs and tries an audacious chip...but the offside flag is up.
    • 52' Well, with such an important game against fellow relegation battlers Wolves coming up this weekend, you'd wonder about how seriously Bolton are going to approach the remaining 40 minutes. Spurs could be eyeing a hatful here.
    • 48' GOAL!!! Gudjohnsen sets Bale clear down the left on the counter, he drives forward and fires in a low cross into the Bolton six-yard area, and Andy O'Brien is the unlucky defender who diverts the ball past his own 'keeper for an own-goal.
    • 46' Gudjohnsen and Pavlyuchenko get the second half underway for Spurs.
    • H-T Gudjohnsen is on for Defoe at half-time for Spurs.
    • 45+1' There's the half-time whistle. Goals from Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko see them go in 2-0 up.
    • 42' Muamba with a neat through ball for Klasnic. The Croatian gets a shot away despite being forced slightly wide, and Gomes is down quickly to his left to save.
    • 35' GOAL!!! Spurs are 2-0 up!!! Modric played a corner out to Huddlestone on the edge of the area, it wouldn't sit right for him to hit it, so he laid it out wide for Palacios, who crossed for Defoe at the near post, and the England man's deft touch guided the ball through the legs of Jaaskelainen. In fact, looking at the replays, it was an own goal! Defoe didn't touch the ball at all, it simply went in off Jaaskelainen's ankle! A rather bizarre own goal!
    • 32' Taylor brings it down on the edge of the area and plays it through for Klasnic...but Bassong gets in enough of a challenge to force a corner. It's swung in towards Knight...but he can do nothing with that.
    • 29' Defoe latches onto a through ball, cuts inside and skips past O'Brien...and Jaaskelainen pulls off an excellent save!
    • 25' Modric gives it away to Gardner, he drives forward, and hammers a fine left foot shot just past the post.
    • 23' Roman Pavlyuchenko puts Spurs 1-0 up!!!! He is fed from the left by Modric, he bustles past the challenge of Zat Knight, and tucks a tidy finish past the onrushing Jaaskelainen!
    • 21' Fine cross in from the right from Holden, and Gardner fails to take advantage of a good chance with a header at the far post.
    • 19' Well, Harry Redknapp willl be looking at the performance of his two full backs with interest tonight. Benni Assou-Ekotto was first choice left back until his injury a couple of months ago, then Gareth Bale came in and has done fantastically well. Ekotto is admittedly playing on his weaker right side tonight, but he's still being totally outshone - on the attacking front in any case - by Bale. Ekotto has just fired his third cross of the game in, and all three have run out harmlessly for goal kicks.
    • 17' Bale takes on Taylor and wins a corner off the Bolton man. The corner comes out to Huddlestone who fires one away, it hits a Bolton defender and falls for Palacios...who drills a volley well wide.
    • 12' Taylor now squeezes a shot through the legs of Bale, and Gomes is forced to parry wide at his near post!
    • 9' Bassong steps in and lashes a screamer of a left foot shot inches over the bar!!! To be fair, Jaaskelainen probably had it covered, but it was a fiercely struck shot nonetheless.
    • 6' Klasnic now with a decent ball in towards Taylor who gets in ahead of Dawson, but Taylor can't get his header on target. That was Bolton's first real attack of the game.
    • 4' Defoe wide for Bentley, he puts in a dangerous ball across the face of goal, and Knight is forced into a smart defensive clearance. It's all Spurs at the moment.
    • 2' Huddlestone with a lovely dummy for Palacios, he steps in...and hits a truly horrid shot from all of 40 yards. The less said about that the better.
    • 1' Bolton kick off the first half at White Hart Lane!
    • 19:45 Bolton team: Jaaskelainen, Ricketts, Knight, Andrew O'Brien, Samuel, Holden, Cohen, Muamba, Gardner, Taylor, Klasnic. Substitutes: Al Habsi, Robinson, Elmander, Riga, Kevin Davies, Shittu, Lee.
    • 19:45 Tottenham team: Gomes, Assou-Ekotto, Dawson, Bassong, Bale, Bentley, Huddlestone, Palacios, Modric, Pavlyuchenko, Defoe. Substitutes: Alnwick, Gudjohnsen, Kranjcar, Rose, Dervite, Kane, M'Poku.
    • 19:40 The first match between these two teams finished 1-1. Jermain Defoe cancelled out Kevin Davies' first half strike at the Reebok Stadium. Spurs should have finished their opponents off in the second half, though Tom Huddlestone missed a penalty and Bolton hung on for a draw.
    • 19:35 We'll have the full team news with you very shortly, but the word on the street is that Roman Pavlyuchenko will start in attack for Spurs tonight after his two goals against Wigan at the weekend.
