FA Cup Betting Preview: Tottenham Hotspur vs Bolton Wanderers on 24.02

Tottenham Hotspur vs Bolton Wanderers 4-0

tottenhamVS Bolton

FA Cup, fifth-round replay
Wednesday, February 24th, 2010 – 20.00 GMT

Tottenham Hotspur

  • This replay is a burden to Harry Redknapp’s side, with important fixtures against Everton and Manchester City on the horizon;
  • But with so many big teams already out of the competition, Spurs will be looking at least to enter the final of the FA Cup;
  • The 3:0 win over Wigan should serve as a big boost for their confidence and the hosts should have an easy job against Bolton’s shaky defence;
  • Roman Pavluchenko probably will get the chance to start after the great substitute appearance against Wigan;
  • Aaron Lennon has suffered a further setback in his recovery from a groin problem, so David Bentley will have another chance to take his place at the right wing;

Bolton Wanderers

  • With Bolton battling against relegation, a replay vs Tottenham is the last thing that Owen Coyle is worried about;
  • The Trotters have not won at White Hart Lane since 2004, and he is likely to rest a few players for this midweek match, ;
  • Jack Wilshire and Vladamir Weiss are cup-tied having already featured in the FA Cup;
  • The Trotters will also be without the injured Gary Cahill, Chris Basham, Gavin McCann , Sean Davis and Joey O’Brien, although Croatian striker Ivan Klasnic is set to return from a injury;
  • They failed to score in every one of their last four away games, even if they have numerous clear-cut chances against Blackburn
