The Boro boss was delighted to have earned a trip to White Hart Lane in the replay

Stevenage manager Gary Smith believes his side can beat Tottenham in the replay.

The Boro held Spurs to a 0-0 draw at Broadhall Way and get a trip to White Hart Lane, with Bolton awaiting the winners.

“It’s quite incredible and we’ve got every chance,” Smith told ITV.

“They’ve got Arsenal and Manchester United soon and we might be sandwiched between them and we’ll go there with belief.

Smith felt his side had chances to win the tie at the first attempt.

“We had one or two opportunities which we should have done better with,” he added.

“A lot of us felt that we’d have to endure some pressure.

“With a talented side like Tottenham you have to absorb some pressure.

“The overall performance was just outstanding”
