Rochdale hero Davies revels in 'dream' Tottenham draw

Rochdale hero Steven Davies was full of joy after his late equaliser secured a 2-2 draw with Tottenham, earning his side an FA Cup fifth-round replay.

The Liverpudlian scored in the 93rd minute to cancel out Harry Kane's late penalty.

Davies told BBC Sport: "I've been out injured for seven weeks and I've found it very tough to get back into the team. Today Calvin [Andrew] missed out and he's been brilliant.

"I've done my job and finished it.

"When you look at it, you look at this day and how special it is. I think you look around, it was written wasn't it?

"I thought we did enough to win it. They bring the big fellas on and you're hanging in there but we've got great team spirit and we'll never give up."

On the upcoming trip to Wembley, Davies added: "It's every kid's dream and we're going to be lucky enough to go there and hopefully put a good performance in and do ourselves proud."
