Tottenham Hotspur v Millwall - the stats

10 March 2017

Sunday's Cup-tie in numbers...

Millwall travel the short distance to White Hart Lane this Sunday afternoon for an Emirates FA Cup Quarter-Final against Tottenham Hotspur (kick-off 2pm).

The tie, to be shown live on BBC One, will be the last-ever Cup match played at Spurs' current home, with a temporary switch to Wembley Stadium on the horizon next season.

As well as entering the history books as the last winners of a Cup-tie in north London, there is the prize of a Wembley Semi-Final on offer, too - one that would be Millwall's second in four years. 

Two new rules have been added to the Emirates FA Cup Quarter-Final stage this season, with no replays - meaning the tie has to be settled on the day, with extra-time and penalties available if needed - accompanying a new motion that will allow a fourth substitute to be used should the game be level after 90 minutes.

The two clubs will meet for the 27th time on Sunday, with Tottenham holding the large majority of victories, having won 20 to The Lions' two.

Those wins for Millwall came in 1929 (5-1) and 1939 (2-0), whilst there have also been four draws between the pair.

The most recent meeting was in non-competitive action in 2001, as Spurs visited The Den for Keith Stevens' testimonial.

Players such as Neil Sullivan, Sergei Rebrov and Les Ferdinand took the field as the away side won 2-1, with Stuart Nethercott bagging The Lions' consolation goal.

Millwall's allocation of 3,681 tickets for Sunday's match has sold out - there will be no more sales before or on the day.

For those that missed out on a ticket, a reminder that the tie will be shown live on BBC One, with the programme starting at 1.30pm. Fans can also listen to live commentary on LionsPlayerHD and can also follow the club's social media channels for up-to-the-minute updates from White Hart Lane.
