Millwall to face Spurs in the Emirates FA Cup Quarter-Finals

19 February 2017

Lions heading to White Hart Lane

Millwall will travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the Quarter-Finals of the Emirates FA Cup.

It will be the 27th meeting between the two London clubs and only the fourth time they've faced each other in the FA Cup.

The Lions have beaten Southend United, Braintree Town, Bournemouth, Watford and most recently Leicester City to get to this stage of the world famous Cup competition, while Spurs have overcome Aston Villa, Wycombe Wanderers and Fulham.

"It's a cracking draw for everyone associated with this football club," Neil Harris told millwallfc.co.uk.

"The players have had the opportunity to test themselves against some of the best Premier League teams in the previous three rounds but in many ways this is another level altogether.

"Spurs are a fantastic side and this gives my players a chance to see how they can compete with some truly outstanding footballers. White Hart Lane is a fantastic stadium, a great place to play football, and it's a tie we're very much looking forward to.

"But we can't look beyond what is to come between now and then, which starts with a hugely important League game against Chesterfield at The Den on Tuesday night."

The Quarter-Final tie will take place between 10th-13th March. A confirmed date and ticket details will be announced when finalised.

The club's progress into the last eight of the FA Cup means that the League trip to Sheffield United, originally scheduled for the same weekend, will be rearranged. A new date will be confirmed in due course.
