Spurs needed Wednesday night's fourth round replay to finally overcome League Two Newport after they almost came unstuck in the original clash on the Welsh side's badly cut up Rodney Parade pitch.
Next up for Spurs is a visit to League One strugglers Rochdale whose sand-covered Spotland Stadium surface has been described as the worst pitch ever.
Pochettino said: “I hear it's not in the best condition but it's like Newport. We need to learn from Newport.
“The conditions are for them as well as us. I haven't seen it yet. But it will be tough, FA Cup is difficult, look at this replay against a League Two team. it is another opportunity for different players to show their quality."
