Stevenage Borough 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur
A resolute Stevenage secured a deserved FA Cup replay at Spurs after holding the Premier League side to a 0-0 draw at the Amex Stadium.
The League One promotion-chasers impressed throughout the fifth-round tie against Harry Redknapp's Tottenham outfit and restricted them to handful of opportunities throughout and were not afraid to press for a goal themselves.
It means both sides have still yet to concede in this season's FA Cup and will go into the hat for the quarter-final draw ahead of the replay at White Hart Lane.
Neither goalkeeper was tested in the opening half as a solid and well organised Stevenage more than held their own against a sloppy looking Spurs, while they looked every much as threatening as their opponents on the break.
The nearest Spurs came was when the lively Danny Rose crossed into the area from the left by-line but Jermain Defoe could not guide his near post effort the right side of the upright on 16 minutes.
Louis Saha had a hopeful shout for a penalty on 35 minutes when he chest a ball down in the area and turned to shoot but had his boot knocked off by Mark Roberts just as he was getting his effort at goal, but his appeals were waved away.
Spurs' best chance of the game came in the first minute of the second half when Bale was given time and space to advance to the edge of the area and fired in a low effort which Chris Day did well to parry round the upright at full stretch.
Spurs were denied a goal on 55 minutes when a rare mix-up in the Stevenage defence allowed Saha to fire in from close range after more good work down the left by Rose. However, the ball went in off Scott Parker in an offside position on the line and the assistant correctly put the flag up to deny them.
Stevenage had a few efforts on goal with Joel Byrom firing just over the bar on 61 minutes from 25 yards, while a second effort a minute later was spilled by Carlo Cudicini and Ryan Nelsen was on hand to clear the danger and spared the Italian's blushes.
