BT Sport; Fox Soccer
A really david vs Goliath story on Saturday as bottom od League One Colchester United face off against Premier League's number four Tottenham Hotspur. The season as a whole has been a struggle for Colchester but they managed to beat Charlton in the last round of the cup to set up this glamour tie with Tottenham and a draw here would mean a massive windfall as Colchester would get hald the receipts from the replay in White Hart Lane. The U's come into this game having scored just 36 goals in 28 games and with their strikers struggling for goals this is a tough game for the U's. George Moncur son of John Mocur is their main goal threat this season with eight goals and the winger has played well since signing full time in November.
Colchester face a bang in form Tottenham though with Pochettino likley to rest some of his stars with a huge Premier League game coming up away to Norwich. Son will start and Kane might get a rest with Delli alli also likely to find himself on the bench. Tottenham are having a fantastic seaosn and I think that they continue it here. Evben though the pitch is likely to be poor given the weather predicted I still think that Tottenham are worth lumping on here and am going to take a max bet on Spurs to get the job done at a generous price of 1/2.
