FA Cup: Kane's Late Strike Saves Spurs Vs Newport County

All is not lost, though, with Tottenham securing a replay at Wembley thanks to their saviour, who has now scored 30 goals in as many appearance this season.

Former West Ham forward Frank Nouble - the only Newport player with Premier League experience - missed a great chance to open the scoring after just four minutes, only for the forward to blaze horribly over the bar with just Michel Vorm to beat.

But Newport took advantage of slack defending soon after to take a deserved lead - Amond heading in at the back post after Trippier failed to deal with Robbie Willmott's cross. A corner delivery is swung in, Son flicks it on and the England global sneaks away to the back post and is left with a simple tap-in.

Spurs could have falled behind inside four minutes when a ball across the box found Newport captain Joss Labadie went through the box.

Their pressure finally paid off in the 82nd minute when Heung-Min Son expertly used the outside of his boot to flick a corner on to an unmarked Kane at the back post, and this time the England global made no mistake, bringing the score to 1-1 and earning his side another chance at qualifying for the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Spurs were now dominating possession but clear-cut chances were hard to come by with the Newport defence standing firm and Kane's assured touch for once letting him down.

"I think because of the finances and how football is now, it would've been the best result [in the FA Cup's history]".

No one can fill Adams' shoes, says new Sinn Fein chief
Adams had announced that he was no longer interested in campaigning for another term at a party conference in November. Several rounds of talks aimed at ending the political stalemate ended without agreement.

The same player nearly doubled the advantage soon afterwards but his effort from a tight angle deflected narrowly wide with Spurs - who did not muster a first-half effort on target - again struggling in defence.

The hosts seemed to be the much more dominant side in the first half and the County 'keeper didn't have to make a single save right up until the half-hour mark.

"I was so disappointed, and disappointed not because we didn't play so well, only that we didn't match them in motivation, in fight", he told the club's official website.

"I think that we were aware that the key to playing today was having the capacity to challenge them".

"I didn't say we weren't motivated, but not motivated in the same level as Newport". Moving to the London club was seen as the player's "imminent destiny".

"We had to get focused again and, let's be honest, it was the only mistake we made all day and we got punished".
