Despite the absence of Spurs’ big name players, like Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Ledley King, etc, the North London club still put out a strong side with the likes of Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Michael Dawson. Cheltenham Town did put up a good fight, however, Spurs were too strong and managed to win comfortably with goals from Defoe, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Giovani Dos Santos.
Spurs in the fourth round of the FA Cup will be away at Watford on January 28th.
Interestingly, Chris from Plymouth sent in a text to the BBC Sport site, saying: “The thought of Gareth Bale at Vicarage Road is going to give me nightmares! I feel for little Lee Hodson!”
Hodson is a 20-year-old right-back who plays for Watford. He’s also a Northern Ireland international, so perhaps not that worried.
