Tottenham v Bolton Match Preview and Statistics
Tottenham v Bolton Match Preview and Statistics

Tottenham will square off against Bolton, in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, at White Hart Lane on 17 March. The two clubs, who have had contrasting seasons in the league so far, will be looking to extend their FA Cup run to the semi-finals of the competition.

However, Spurs, who have not won the competition since 1991, have lost three back-to-back games in the league and will be looking forward to playing a Bolton side that is not only struggling in the league but was beaten a comfortable 3-0 the last time the sides played.

Furthermore, the fact that Spurs have won four of the last six FA Cup games against the Wanderers should provide them with another confidence boost. Add to that the fact that they have won seven FA Cup games on the trot, at home, and a win for the hosts seems almost a certainty.

Meanwhile, the Wanderers, who despite an awful league campaign, have trotted through to the quarter-finals of the competition with relative ease, will have to reckon with injuries to key players.

Tottenham probable team: Friedel; Kaboul, King, Assou-Ekotto, Walker; Modric, Parker, Bale, van der Vaart; Saha, Adebayor

Bolton probable team: Jaaskelainen; Ream, Wheater, Ricketts, Steinsson; Reo-Coker, M Davies, Pratley, Miyaichi, Eagles (doubtful); Klasnic
