It will be semi final derby day in the FA Cup after Tottenham and Everton secured their places in the semi finals.

In an emotional night at White Hart Lane, goals from Ryan Nelsen, Gareth Bale and Louis Saha helped Tottenham to a 3-1 FA Cup victory over Bolton.

Spurs dominated the clash, re-arranged after the cardiac arrest suffered by Fabrice Muamba in the original tie, however they found Adam Bogdan in inspired form in the Bolton goal.

Harry Redknapp’s side eventually found the breakthrough when New Zealander Nelson headed home at the back pist with 16 minutes left before Bale killed off the tie three minutes later when he slotted home a Defoe pass.

Kevin Davies pulled one back at the death before Louis Saha sealed the win in injury time.
