FA Cup fifth round draw: Lions will face Newport or Tottenham if they can defeat Rochdale

Millwall will be at home to either Tottenham Hotspur or Newport County if they reach the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Lions face a replay at Rochdale next week to determine who progresses after a 2-2 draw at The Den on Saturday.

Millwall are most likely to square off against Spurs if they are successful in the return fixture with Dale. The South Londoners reached the quarter-finals of the competition last year before losing 6-0 to Spurs at White Hart Lane.

This time Neil Harris’ side would enjoy home advantage.

Harry Kane scored a late equaliser for Tottenham to stop League Two side Newport causing a famous upset in the tournament. The two clubs will do it again at Wembley, the north London club’s temporary home while stadium renovations at White Hart Lane are ongoing.
