Harry Kane equaliser rescues Spurs at Newport

Tottenham avoided an FA Cup upset of seismic proportions as they fought back to rescue a hard-earned fourth-round draw against League Two Newport County, whose heroic display will be rewarded with a lucrative replay at Wembley.

Harry Kane captained a strong Spurs side, but they were rattled by a fervent Newport performance and riotous atmosphere at Rodney Parade, which erupted when Padraig Amond headed the hosts in front.

After a dreadful first half, the visitors improved and dominated after the break and had several chances to equalise, with Kane heading over and Son Heung-min being denied by a fine save from Joe Day.

Newport's gargantuan effort took its toll as they tired towards the end of the game and, from a corner with eight minutes left, Kane tapped in at the back post to level.

Although victory against Premier League opponents who are 72 places above them in the football pyramid would have represented arguably the greatest result in Newport's history, a profitable replay at Wembley is an excellent consolation.

Having defied the odds to beat Championship side Leeds in the third round, the Exiles still have hopes of reaching the fifth round - with the chance of causing another shock - for the first time since 1949.

For Spurs, meanwhile, this was a major embarrassment narrowly avoided against a team who only preserved their Football League status with victory on the final day of last season.
