Stevenage keeper Chris Day excited to finally play at Tottenham

Stevenage goalkeeper Chris Day is excited to be going back to Tottenham tonight for their FA Cup replay.

Day, a lifelong Spurs fan, came through the junior system at White Hart Lane.

He declared: "It will be my first competitive game there and it will be fantastic.

"The last time I played there will have been in some youth game of some description because we played our reserve games at St Albans.

"I remember being a schoolboy training at White Hart Lane and our coach used to send us on a lap of the pitch after training and he would say, 'one day you will play here'. Who would have thought that that day would come 21 years later?

"I am really looking forward to it. I have waited a long time to have a game like this. There is nothing better than playing under floodlights for a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup."
