Football: Spurs end Newport's Cup run at the second attempt Feb 09, 2018 0 60 12345 LondonTottenham Hotspur finally ended lowly Newport County's brave FA Cup run with a 2-0 win in a fourth-round replay at Wembley on Wednesday.Eight-time winners Spurs were just eight minutes away from a humiliating exit when England striker Harry Kane scored to salvage a 1-1 draw away to fourth-tier Newport last month. But it was a different story at Wembley where, with South Korea's Son Heung-Min impressing for Tottenham, Dan Butler's 26th-minute own goal and an Erik Lamela strike eight minutes later put Spurs 2-0 up before half-time.Tottenham will now travel to third-tier strugglers Rochdale for a last-16 tie on the weekend of February 17-18."It's the FA Cup and it's difficult," Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino told the BBC."But I am happy because we wanted to be in the next round."Son Heung-Min is doing fantastic this season and he feels important."It is important to keep going and winning games. We are going to be very busy in the Premier League, Champions League and the FA Cup but we want to keep this run."Meanwhile Newport manager Michael Flynn praised the visitors' performance."It was a good start in the first 25 minutes, but the manner of the goal, the way it went in, it took it out of the boys and deflated them," he said."I am very proud of the players. They put in a huge amount of work and they have done themselves and the club proud."The FA Cup has been a huge financial boost for Newport, with their run to this stage earning them at least Â£700,000 ($972,000, 792,000 euros).
