Thanks for joining me and make sure you stay tuned to skysports.com for all of the post-match reaction.
Stevenage 0 Tottenham 0. We end all square. No goals, with Stevenage having been able to shackle Spurs relatively easily. They will now go to White Hart Lane for a replay.
Cowan isolated up front for Stevenage and can't keep the ball. Desperate defending now from the hosts. Lennon hangs a dangerous cross into the middle, but Parker can't grow enough. Cowan races clear, but hacks a horrible shot miles off target.
Wilson's legs carry him to the dead-ball line, but his cross can't find May. Dawson in the right place for Spurs. Noise level increases, with the home support looking to carry their side over the line.
Kaboul down the right, but his cross is easily hacked clear at the front post. Stevenage set off on a counter.
Parker slips his man, but doesn't take the ball with him. May threatens to lead a counter, but is all on his own against three defenders and is soon outnumbered.
Any goal now would surely win it. Can either side dig deep enough to create one clear-cut opportunity?
Lennon tees up Defoe on the edge of the box. He has to let the ball drift across him and onto his left foot, which isn't his best. His poked effort trickles well wide of the target.
Lennon nips inside and leaves defenders in his wake. His cross can't find a team-mate. Lennon has already offered more during his brief cameo than most of Spurs' attacking talent has in the entire game.
Stray pass from Henry. He tries to send the ball down the line, but slices it straight out. Wilson is then pulled up for a foul on Kranjcar.
Stevenage look very tired. Have they got enought left in the tank to see this through? Spurs will be looking to their fresh legs to make a difference now.
Saha's header strikes Bostwick. Handball shouts from the away support are waved away. Lennon's first touch saw him drift past Freeman with ease and pick put Saha.
Bale has dropped in to left-back. Don't imagine he will spend much time there. Spurs prepared to keep three back and push everyone else forward in search of a goal.
Solid defending from Wilson as he tracks Rose all the way back. He makes sure that the Spurs winger has no room in which to put over a cross. Sums up the effort on show from the hosts.
Stevenage need to ensure that they remained well organised. They have barely been troubled so far and are only 11 minutes away from a trip to White Hart Lane.
Henry well forward from full-back. His cross finds May, but he is unable to turn and shoot. The ball is then played back towards Wilson, but he can't keep it in play.
Kaboul's cross is deflected out to Kranjcar, but he can't twist and turn inside the box. He ends up going back to Kaboul, whose second attempt picks out Day.
May with good hold up play, as Dawson stands well off him. Stevenage are unable to get the ball wide, though, and the move breaks down. Spurs trudge forward again.
Cowan's first touch almost sees him past Dawson, but the Spurs defender sticks out a leg just in time. Bale races forward on the counter and crosses for Saha. His flick is tame. At the opposite end of the field, Freeman scuffs straight at Cudicini.
Defoe and Parker combine well, with the latter then rolling a pass into the path of Saha. He chases hard, but is beaten to the ball by Roberts. Kaboul then concedes a needless free-kick.
Kaboul bursts forward and his cross finds Bale, who wins a corner. The Welshman takes the set-piece himself, but his hanging delivery to the back post is plucked out of the air by Day.
Saha fires a cross in towards Parker. He has no chance of gathering it in, and has strayed offside anyway. Stevenage starting to allow gaps to open up.
Defoe does well to hold off three defenders and win a corner. Kranjcar aims at Dawson, but can't find his head. The ball ends up back with Cudicini. Charles then commits a foul on halfway.
Stevenage can try again. Rose trips Freeman after seeing his touch let him down. Better delivery needed this time. Freeman goes much flatter this time, but Laird's flick cannons into a black shirt.
Charles is tripped by Livermore. Opportunity for Stevenage to push the big men forward. Freeman's delivery has too much on it and ends up in the arms of Cudicini.
Bale dropping very deep in search of the ball. He has no options, though, and has to go backwards. Walker then leads Spurs forward, but the final pass from Parker lets the visitors down.
Still Spurs are happy to pass the ball along their back four. They then give it to Livermore, who gives it away. Surely they don't want this to go to a replay? They should be doing all they can to force a breakthrough.
Byrom is running the show at the moment. He has Cudicini troubled again with another 25 yard drive. This time the Spurs keeper spills his shot and requires Nelsen to bail him out.
Stevenage causing plenty of problems now. They are growing in belief. Can they cause an almighty upset?
Another crashing drive from Byrom. This time his effort does trouble Cudicini, with the ball flashing inches over the top of the Spurs crossbar.
Livermore has his pocket picked by Charles. He wanted too long on the ball. Wilson then takes Stevenage down their right and wins a throw. The ball is worked back inside to Freeman, but he lashes well wide.
Bale drifts across from right to left. He winds up from 30 yards, but the ball hits a bobble as he brings his foot back and his shot dribbles behind.
Beardsley turns on the edge of the box and lays the ball into the path of Byrom. His stinging drive cannons into Walker. The Spurs full-back had to get there, and he did.
Redknapp doesn't look happy, but only he can change things. He needs to get Kranjcar ready again. Or maybe Lennon. His pace might cause Stevenage problems.
After saying I couldn't see a goal coming we almost had one. Maybe I should say it more often from this point on! Spurs back on the front foot, as Saha fires high into the crowd from 20 yards.
Ball in the net but it won't count. Rose skipped past Henry and fired over a cross. Day can only parry to Saha. He pokes into the net, but the ball hits Parker on the line and he is stood in an offside position. Unlucky as he couldn't move out of the way.
Spurs still lack urgency. They are knocking the ball around but causing no threat. Changes are needed to inject some life into the game. Difficult to see where a goal is coming from at the moment.
Wilson waves his arms in frustration and he moves down the right and the ball goes the other way. Stevenage remain in possession and Bostwick has another go from a long way out. Again, his effort is well off target.
Bale and Walker combine, but they get nowhere. One pass too many from Spurs. They seem to lack ideas when they get in and around the Stevenage penalty area.
Nice football from the hosts has Freeman breaking down the left. He feeds the ball back to Laird, but his cross is not the best and bounces into the grateful arms of Cudicini.
Kranjcar was stripped and ready at the interval, but he has sat back down. Spurs could do with his creativity. On the field, a long ball forward from Stevenage fails to pick out Charles. They need to keep the ball better.
Good movement by Livermore and Parker in midfield. Kaboul then bursts down the left flank. No way through for Spurs. They try again, but Stevenage have everyone behind the ball.
Saha offside once again. He needs to look along the line before he sets off. Spurs can't build up a head of steam if the game keeps on being broken up.
Rose swings the set-piece into the middle, and Day comes through the crowd to punch clear. Better from Spurs at the start of the second half. They know they need to raise their game if they are to avoid a replay, or an upset.
Ashton hacks skywards from in front of Saha. Beardsley on the ball, but loses his footing and the ball. Bale races forward and goes for goal himself. His 20 yard drive is tipped around the post by Day.
The players are back with us. Hopefully they can provide a bit more entertainment in the second half. One goal will open the tie up.
Nick van Wensveen says: "Horrible football to watch. Not the Spurs we're used to seeing. Hopefully they can turn it around!"
Remember you can also bet in-play at skybet.com. Stevenage are now 7/1 to pick up a win, with Spurs 8/11 and the draw 6/4. You can get 8/1 on Stevenage to win 1-0.

Stevenage 0 Tottenham 0. All square at the interval in this fifth round clash. The hosts have more than held their own, with Spurs having been well short of their best. Few chances, but a good old fashioned cup clash.
Bostwick with another effort from distance. This time his shot deflects behind for a corner. The ball makes its way all the way across goal, but no-one can get a touch.
Walker and Cudicini make a mess of clearing their lines, but are let off the hook by Beardsley as he tries to keep the ball in play but ends up bundling it behind. Spurs will be happy to get in at half-time and talk things over. They need to improve...a lot!
Kaboul with a thunderbolt of a strike. His effort fizzes well wide, but it was past Day like a shot. He cut across the ball a bit too much. Good idea though.
Sloppy from Dawson as he sprays a pass towards Nelsen without even looking. The pass is way off target, but there is no white shirt on hand to take advantage. Spurs do move forward and Defore is felled 25 yards from goal.
The corner goes deep to Beardsley. The ball then drops nicely to the Stevenage striker and his stinging shot is blocked by Saha. More handball shouts go up, but they fall on deaf ears.
Another free-kick to Stevenage in a promising position. Walker bundles into Beardsley. Chance to load the box. Freeman delivers and, after Bale nods up in the air, Cudicini has to flap behind for a corner.
Charles bundles his way forward. Mayhem in the Spurs box for a moment as Stevenage desperately look for a clear sight of goal. They can't find one. They do win a free-kick, but Spurs deal with the danger.
Parker wins a corner. It is taken short and hung up towards Dawson. His header looks to be heading just wide, but is hacked clear anyway.
Six over the ball for Spurs as they line up the free-kick. Would appear to favour a right footer. They move it to Defoe, but his effort is charged down. Should have gone straight for goal.
Saha was calling for a penalty, but he got nothing. He lost his boot, so there must have been a challenge put in on him. He is soon back in the thick of the action and is bundled over from behind by Henry. Free-kick to Spurs 20 yards out.
Livermore fires a great ball into Saha. He takes the ball well onto his chest and bursts into the box. He slips as he chases after his own knock down and fires well wide on the stretch.
Walker unable to make contact with a Rose cross. The Spurs winger hangs a great cross to the back post, but Walker can't grow enough to nod home from two yards out.
Wilson surges to the dead-ball line and attempts to whip a cross into the box. He can't wrap his foot around the ball enough and his delivery dritfs behind. At the other end, Spurs knock on the door but can't open it.
Charles gets in front of his man, but can't glance the ball on. Rose is then unable to keep it in play as he attempts to break. Plenty of effort on show, but a distinct lack of quality so far.
Rose does really well to twist and turn down the left flank and fire over a cross. Plenty of bodies in the middle, but ut is Roberts who gets there first to hammer clear for the hosts.
Beardsley with a wild shot that never looks like troubling Cudicini. Both keepers have yet to make a save of note.
Stevenage continue to press at every opportunity. They are prepared to throw numbers forward when they can. At the moment, the final ball is letting them down.
Space again for Rose on the Spurs left. He is, however, unable to put over a cross. He instead invites Kaboul forward on the overlap, but his push and run sends the ball out of play.
Rose prepares to take a throw but is forced to wait as Beardsley has lost his boot. Ashton and Defoe having a niggle at each other as they jostle for space.
Great pass from Walker to Rose, from one side of the field to the other. Spurs' left wing-back cuts inside off his flank and goes for goal. An ambitious effort sails out for a throw.
Walker this time is unable to bring the ball under his spell. Spurs have struggled to get a foot on the ball. Stevenage will have taken plenty of heart from their performance so far.
Defoe rolls the ball into Bale 20 yards out, but his shot is blocked at source. The ball makes its way back to Saha, who drills low across the face of goal and wide of the far post.
Wayward pass from Rose only finds Beardsley. Stevenage's attack lacks urgency and Spurs can get men back in position. Henry eventually hangs over a cross, but Dawson is underneath it.
Beardsley tumbles over a challenge from Nelsen, who gets away with it. Looked like a foul. Spurs then play another aimless ball forward. Redknapp is now on his feet, obviously unhappy with the way his side are playing.
Nelen does well to get a toe to the ball as Charles gets set to pull the trigger. The ball was bobbling around just inside the Spurs penalty area. Stevenage try again, but Freeman is unable to find Beardsley.
Another hacked clearance from Spurs comes straight back at them. Space for Bostwick, who goes wide to Henry. Bostwick gets the ball back and goes for goal from 35 yards. His scuffed shot cannons into Charles.
Charles tries to touch a low cross into his strike partner, but gets his flick all wrong and the ball rolls behind for a goal kick. Beardsley and Charles then take the time to discuss what should have happened, as if either needs to be told.
Sloppy from Spurs as they gift the ball to Wilson. He then gives it straight back. Both sides trying a little too hard at times. Spurs forced back into their own corner and Dawson hacks into the stands.
Defoe goes close. Rose does well to skip down the Spurs left. He drills a low cross into the front post, where Defoe pokes narrowly wide. He couldn't find the right angle to divert the ball on target.
Charles holds the ball up well, but is unable to pick out a run from Laird down the Stevenage left. Bale is now out on the Spurs right. He is desperate to get involved and has been given license to roam.
Less than a quarter-of-an-hour played and we have already lost two balls. It must cost Stevenage a fortune over the course of a season!
Byrom and Bostwick unable to combine in midfield. Not a lot of room in there at the moment.Spurs take the chance to slow things down again.
Kaboul swings the ball in behind, where Saha is lurking. He has strayed a yard offside. Good idea, he just went afraction too soon. Walker then breaks up a Stevenage break down their left.
Stevenage continue to work hard when not in possession. Spurs are forced wideways and back on halfway. Nelsen then goes all the way back to Cudicini. Patient from Spurs. No need to fire it long towards Saha and Defoe, who aren't the biggest.
Poor touch from Walker as he allows the ball to run under his foot. All a bit scrappy from the Premier League side so far. If they didn't already, they now know that they are in for a tough test this afternoon.
Defoe tales a tumble in the middle of the park. Free-kick to Spurs. Bale then tries to make inroads down the left wing, but runs down a blind alley.
Rose whips the ball in dangerously. He dips it into the heart of the box, but it is Ashton who gets a boot to the ball first. Stevenage unable to counter as a pass wide to their right goes astray.
Flag does go up this time, against Charles. Redknapp still sat on the bench at the moment. As he watches on, Laird concedes a corner.
Long ball in towards Defoe, who has ghosted in behind the Stevenage back four. No flag, but the ball skips off the turf and into the hands of Day. Warning to Stevenage that they need to keep a close eye on Defoe's movement.
Bostwick thinks about a shot from 30 yards, but decides against it. He goes wide to Henry, and his cross is bundled behind for a corner. Beardsley rises highest to meet the delivery, but glances his header well wide of the post.
Stevenage prepared to let Spurs have the ball in their own half and get men behind the ball. As soon as the visitors start to push forward, red and white shirts swarm around them. It's working well so far.
Huge clearance from Day. Spurs yet to get going. Bale with a rare poor touch as he tries to get involved. Stevenage are pumped up, but can they maintain this level?
Freeman whips over the free-kick from the left, but he rather scuffs his delivery and it is hacked clear by the first man. The ball is returned to the box and a handball shout goes up against Dawson. Nothing given. Cudicini then comes for a high ball, drops it, but gathers at the second attempt.
Long ball forward from Walker is aimed towards Saha. He is unable to get a telling touch on the ball and it runs safely through to Day. Stevenage are able to force their way forward, and Walker fells Freeman 35 yards out.
All a bit 100mph in the first 60 seconds. Stevenage determined to make their mark on proceedings, but they need to calm down and play their football.
The players step out into the sunshine. They are greeted by a roar from the home support. Full house, as you would expect, and the promise of a lively atmosphere. Here's hoping we are given plenty to get excited about.
Jamie Redknapp has just taken his seat in the stands. Pushing it fine, but he is all set for kick-off. The players will be with us shortly. Just over five minutes until this contest gets underway.
Aaron Middleton is hoping to see a memorable upset. He says: "Stevenage to win 2-1 and then become FA Cup dark horses."
Former Spurs trainess Chris Day and Ronnie Henry named in the Stevenage starting XI. Big day for them and a big day for the club as they prepare to grace the fifth round of the FA Cup for the first time.
Tottenham team: Cudicini, Walker, Dawson, Kaboul, Nelsen, Rose, Parker, Livermore, Bale, Saha, Defoe. Subs: Friedel, Lennon, Kranjcar, King, Khumalo, Dawkins, Luongo.
Stevenage team: Day, Henry, Ashton, Roberts, Laird, Wilson, Byrom, Bostwick, Freeman, Charles, Beardsley. Subs: Julian, Edwards, Long, Reid, Myrie-Williams, May, Cowan.
Terry Sims is another backing Spurs to come through in comfortable fashion. He says: "I think today's game will be a cracker with Stevenage giving a good account of themselves but Tottenham to be too good and I think Spurs will win 4-1. Spurs scorers to be Saha 2, Defoe and Bale with a goal. Come on you Spurs."
Cian Hughes is tipping the Premier League visitors to move safely through to the next round. He says: "Very tough game today, Stevenage will be up for this but i think Spurs could win this by 1-3."
Will bring you the teams in full as and when we get them. For now, though, we can confirm that Ryan Nelsen will make his Tottenham debut. The likes of Parker, Bale, Saha and Defoe and also included from the start.
You can also bet in-play at skybet.com. Stevenage start as 8/1 outsiders, with Tottenham 1/3 and the draw 4/1. You can get 3/1 on Jermain Defoe to break the deadlock.

Spurs, meanwhile, are still plugging away in the Premier League title race, with a top-four finish almost guaranteed. They have won the FA Cup on eight previous occasions, but the last of those came way back in 1991.
The League One hopefuls are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions, winning five of those fixtures. Promotion into the Championship may be the priority, but Stevenage would welcome a crack at the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Stevenage will be hoping the magic of the FA Cup has been sprinkled heavily over them, with a potential giant-killing on the cards this afternoon.
