Peterborough United goalkeeper Joe Lewis hopes to prove his class today against FA Cup opponents Tottenham.

Lewis has worked with many of Spurs' players with the England squad.

Lewis said: "I was an unused substitute but I still had to face Jermain (Defoe) in training and that was a test in itself.

"Peter Crouch was there as well and he's a top bloke as well as a top player. I first met him when he was ]on loan at Norwich. I also know Aaron Lennon and Tom Huddlestone from my time with the Under-21 side.

"But it won't matter who is in the Tottenham side.

"They are flying right now and will be expected to walk all over us.

"For that very reason, though, I think all the pressure is on them.

"Although we're bottom of the Championship, we can go out and play with a bit of freedom and express ourselves."
