Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Millwall or Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup if they can overcome Newport County on February 7.
The draw was conducted on BBC One this evening with Ruud Gullit and Robbie Savage picking out the home and away teams respectively.
If Mauricio Pochettino’s men can get past the Exiles at Wembley next week, they will travel to the Den or Spotland Stadium.
The tie will take place across the weekend of February 16-18 and it is another good draw for Tottenham despite it being away again.
