Tottenham fans criticise one man's performance against Newport: "Shocking", "Awful"

Tottenham

Newport showed their intent from the opening moments as Eric Dier was put under pressure and lost the ball to Joss Labadie, whose cross was blazed wildly over by the unmarked Frank Nouble when he should have given the Welsh side the lead.

It might sound over-anxious to worry about how Tottenham will do at home against a League Two side but the fact is that on Saturday evening they were eight minutes away from going out.

The Londoners don't feel that's a fair sum for an unwanted player with 18 months left on his contract. However, in their first five games of the year, they had won three and drawn two.

The former Corinthians player has been showing prominent class ever since he arrived at Matmut Atlantique in 2016, establishing himself as an indispensable first-team player. However, Spurs 'keeper, Vorm managed to hold on well to keep out the skipper's strike. You can't say they don't deserve it - they have been the better side in the first half.

However, a fantastic finger-tip save from Day onto the post made sure that the score would stay at 0-0.

They nearly drew level in the 57th minute when Trippier dropped a pin-point cross onto Kane's head, but somehow the striker headed over the bar when it seemed easier to score.

Two minutes later, a long throw from Ben Tozer was launched into the penalty area.

Newport, a massive 72 places behind a Spurs side who are fifth in the Premier League, sparked delirious scenes at Rodney Parade when Amond gave them a 38th-minute lead. Trippier's delightful cross picks out none-other-than Tottenham's talisman Kane at the back post but somehow he heads over from a few yards out with the goal gaping.

Kane went close to a victor in stoppage time, expertly trapping a long ball over the top, before having his shot blocked by Newport defender Ben White.

In the 68th minute, a flowing move saw the ball make its way to substitute Heung-min Son, but his effort was well saved by Day. "It was hard to play forward, always playing safe".

Finally, though, Spurs were able to find a way past Day in the 82nd minute through Kane.

Their pressure finally paid off in the 82nd minute when Heung-Min Son expertly used the outside of his boot to flick a corner on to an unmarked Kane at the back post, and this time the England global made no mistake, bringing the score to 1-1 and earning his side another chance at qualifying for the fifth round of the FA Cup. It was an easy tap-in for the forward as he netted home for the equaliser.
