Defoe struck twice in six minutes in front of watching England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson to set up a home tie with Nottingham Forest next Sunday after
West Brom had given Spurs an early scare. Former Arsenal striker Kanu headed Albion into an 11th-minute lead before Robbie Keane equalised from a

finished off Fredi Kanoute's low cross six minutes later.
Fulham had earlier earned a fifth-round trip to Bolton with two extra-time goals through substitutes Collins John and Claus Jensen which gave them a

levelled from the penalty spot. Luis Boa Morte put Fulham ahead before substitute Paul Peschisolido took the game into extra-time when John and Jensen
Brentford won 1-0 in their FA Cup fourth-round replay against Hartlepool with Isaiah Rankin scoring the only goal of the game at Victoria Park. The
home side were reduced to 10 men in the eighth minute when Jack Ross brought down Stephen Hunt when through on goal, although Hunt had the resulting
penalty saved by Dimitrios Konstantopoulos. Rankin hit the bar before snatching the winner just after the break, setting up a tie at Southampton.
