Rochdale 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur: Sky Bet League One's bottom club earn replay at Wembley

Steve Davies earned Rochdale a Wembley replay against Tottenham with a dramatic late equaliser in the FA Cup fifth-round game at the Crown Oil Arena.

Sky Bet League One's bottom club played superbly to take the lead into half-time thanks to captain Ian Henderson's sixth goal of their cup run, yet they looked to have been denied when Lucas Moura equalised.

Henderson was a pre-match Sky Bet Price Boost at 18/1 to open the scoring and Rochdale could be backed at 15/8 for the win just before Moura made it 1-1.

Substitute Harry Kane netted a penalty with just two minutes left but, three minutes into four minutes of added time, Dale threw men forward and got their reward as Davies lashed in to make it 2-2.

The draw reached 100/1 in Sky Bet's in-play odds in the moments ahead of Davies' equaliser.

Sky Bet's biggest winning RequestABet was Lucas Moura to score, both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and Harrison McGahey to be carded at 33/1.

Post-match reaction

Steve Davies admitted he would be living the dream by playing in the replay against Spurs at Wembley.

He told BBC1: "They say it's every kid's dream (to play at Wembley) and we have done enough to go there."

He added of his late equaliser: "I've done my job, it's dropped to me and I've finished it."

Fellow scorer Ian Henderson said: "It's unbelievable. We played some incredible football against Spurs. We cannot wait to go to Wembley to play them.

"I knew that we would always have an opportunity (to equalise)."

Rochdale manager Keith Hill was in celebratory mood after his side's dramatic draw.

He said: "It was special. We had to do it our way and we did."

Of the trip to Wembley, he added: "That's reward for the players and their efforts. The players will be looking forward to it as well as the supporters."

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino had no complaints and stressed they could have no excuse with the newly-laid surface.

"The pitch was good, very good. Happy because I think it was a great game and I think the pitch helped to make that for both teams," he said.

"We are not complaining because they deserved to go and play at Wembley.

"I think after Harry scored we all believed the tie was won.

"The good news is we are alive after a difficult day. Now we have to move forward. We have another opportunity to get to the quarter-final."
