Tottenham will take on League One side Stevenage in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Broadhall Way on Sunday; kickoff is at 2pm.

Harry Redknapp will be without Dutch playmaker Rafael Van der Vaart as the midfielder remains sidelined with a calf injury.

New signing Ryan Nelsen looks likely to make his first start for Spurs as Younes Kaboul is injured and Ledley King will most likely be rested.

Louis Saha may also start as the former Everton man is not cup-tied and is available for selection if Harry Redknapp is looking to rest Emmanuel Adebayor.

William Gallas and Tom Huddlestone are still out with long term calf and ankle injuries respectively.

Stevenage have no injury concerns ahead of Tottenham’s visit and manager Gary Smith is likely to start the same side that beat Sheffield Wednesday midweek.

Former Spurs ‘keeper Chris Day looks set to face his old side while Arsenal loanee Chuks Aneke will take part due to terms of his deal with Stevenage.

The League One side are in top form, having won five from their last six games and they haven’t conceded a goal in any of their four previous FA Cup games this season.
