Tottenham Hotspur can take their place in the FA Cup fifth round with a win against Newport County at Wembley on Wednesday night.

The Premier League side came within eight minutes of a shock exit at the hands of Michael Flynn's men at Rodney Parade and Mauricio Pochettino and his players will be desperate to avoid a tight tie in this fourth round replay.

Latest odds

Spurs have won seven of their last eight matches at Wembley and dabblebet offer just 1/12 (1.08) that the Premier League side claim the win.

Newport may feel that their best chance of progressing has passed and the 25/1 (26.0) quote on offer for an away win certainly reflects the enormity of the task facing the visitors.

dabblebet also go 17/2 (9.50) that the match remains level at the end of 90 minutes at the national stadium.

Team news

Harry Kane has started in both of Spurs' FA Cup ties so far this season and could well lead the home side's attack again, while Lucas Moura is in line to make his home debut.

The visitors may name the same starting line-up that earned a 1-1 draw in the original tie.

Spurs set to cruise

Six of Spurs' last eight home wins have seen Pochettino's men keep a clean sheet and dabblebet offer just 1/2 (1.50) that the trend continues in this tie.

Meanwhile, five of Spurs' last seven Wembley wins have been by, at least, a three goal margin and they are 8/11 (1.73) repeat the feat.

Tips and predictions

Newport County came agonisingly close to a famous win when they locked horns with Spurs at Rodney Parade last month.

Pochettino and his team, however, will be determined to ensure that there is no such scare on this occasion.

The 8/11 (1.73) quote from dabblebet, therefore, for Spurs (-2) to win appears to represent good value for punters ahead of Wednesday's Cup clash.
