SLICE OF LUCK NOT ENOUGH

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FOURTH ROUND -

LEAGUE One strug­glers Colch­ester United were un­able to stop Tot­ten­ham cruis­ing into the FA Cup fifth round for the first time in four years.

A dou­ble from in-form Nacer Chadli and one each for Eng­land young­sters Eric Dier and Tom Car­roll en­sured there would be no fa­mous up­set for the We­ston Homes Com­mu­nity Sta­dium crowd.

Colch­ester did have a slice of luck with their con­so­la­tion goal to make it 3-1, Gavin Massey’s strike against the post go­ing in off Spurs de­fender Ben Davies. But it’s the north Lon­don­ers who go into the hat for to­day’s draw.
