BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Spurs will only manage a draw on Sunday in the FA Cup fourth round clash at Leeds United.
Last time out, Lawro correctly predicted that we would draw against Manchester United last weekend. Let’s hope that he is wrong with this weekend’s prediction, at this stage of the season the last thing we need is to cram in another match into an already hectic fixture calendar.
Lawro told BBC Sport Online: ” A few months ago I would have looked at this game and thought that Tottenham might not fancy it too much but they are made of sterner stuff now, and have got some strong characters.
“I don’t know what team Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas will pick, but if it includes Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon then you would have to fancy them big style.
“But Leeds have had some decent results in the Cup in the last couple of years, beating Manchester United at Old Trafford in 2010 and taking Arsenal to a replay last season, so I would back them to take this tie to White Hart Lane.
“Lawro’s prediction: 1-1 (Tottenham to win the replay).”
