Tottenham 3-1 Wigan – FA Cup – Highlights
Roman Pavlyuchenko’s two goals and Luka Modric’s header put Tottenham into the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Pavlyuchenko enjoyed a superb match, and coolly slotted home a 52nd-minute penalty after Fraizer Campbell was fouled by Wigan keeper Richard Kingson.
Modric headed home a second after Jamie O’Hara’s shot hit the post, before Henri Camara scored for Wigan late on.
But Pavlyuchenko had the final say with a fine injury-time goal, keeping his team in three cup competitions.
They have a Carling Cup semi-final against Burnley on Tuesday and a UEFA Cup date at Shakhtar Donetsk in February.
But although Premier League survival remains their number one objective, boss Harry Redknapp – an FA Cup winner with Portsmouth last May – must have been pleased with much of what he saw against a side who have won five of their last six Premier League starts.
