Soccer – Hill hopes for Spurs date

Keith Hill is relishing the prospect of his Rochdale side playing host to Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Dale edged their fourth-round replay against Millwall 1-0 and now await the winners of the replay between Spurs, who are 9/2 with bet35 to win the FA Cup, and Newport County, which is being played on Wednesday evening. And Hill says the opportunity to take on one of the Premier League big boys would be great for his club, both on and off the field. He told reporters after an Ian Henderson strike was enough to see off the Lions at Spotland: "The finance is the stand-out reward - it's a chance to dream and a chance to play against Premier League opposition if Spurs beat Newport. "My head says let's play Newport, who we would respect, but my heart says let's play Tottenham. "We would have to play at our very, very best and they would have to have an off-day for us to have any chance, but that's the dream."
