"It shows you how the season has gone for us.

"When we dominated for patches of the game that's when you have to score your goal. Unfortunately we didn't get the goal.

"I can't fault the players. I thought they were fantastic, and it was a great advert for the club.

"We had 51% of the possession, and it shows you how well we played against Premiership opposition. But we didn't take the opportunities when we were on top."

"It was raining; the pitch was heavy - and the crowd was passionate.

"It was a typical afternoon to go out of the FA Cup, which happened last year, and I'm pleased it didn't happen to us now.

"I think we are satisfied to take them back to White Hart Lane.

"In the first half we couldn't score; in the second half we had two chances, and in the last five minutes they could have nicked it.

"If you don't score then this is the maximum result. We're still in the cup and play a home game now - there are more teams going out of this cup to lower-league teams, and it is not easy."

"I'm happy that we are in four competitions. When I saw the draw, Cardiff away, a great Spurs side went out to them 30 years ago. It can happen."
