Spurs Win | Official FA Cup Sixth Round Highlights [video]

Second-half goals from Ryan Nelsen, Gareth Bale and Louis Saha sent Tottenham into the semi-final of the FA Cup, where they will face Chelsea.

Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan was in fine form denying the hosts several times, before Nelsen headed the opener.

Shortly after, Bale doubled their lead finishing off a fine Spurs break before Kevin Davies gave the visitors hope after converting Ivan Klasnic’s cross.

But Saha sealed the win in injury time with a turn and shot from 20 yards.

The rearranged game marked an emotional return to White Hart Lane for Bolton’s players after the original fixture was abandoned when midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed , suffering a cardiac arrest during the first half.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admitted that sentiment would go out of the window when the game kicked off, and his side were true to their word in a one-sided first half.

They ended the half with 11 attempts on goal, eight of which were on target, while Bolton failed to muster a single chance.

But despite their dominance the game remained goalless at the break, thanks largely to Bolton keeper Bogdan – who was in superb form.

He was called into action on numerous occasions, with his low full-stretch save from Scott Parker’s close-range effort the pick of the bunch. Emmanuel Adebayor and Bale also tested him on more than one occasion.
