England striker Jermain Defoe smashed two second-half goals to put Tottenham into the fifth round of the FA Cup as they came from behind to beat West Brom 3-1.
 

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 dubious penalty award just before the interval. Defoe sealed victory for Spurs when he fired home from Michael Carrick's pass in the 48th minute and 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 4-2 victory over a gallant Derby side. The Barclays Premiership side had gone behind to an early goal from Grzegorz Rasiak before Papa Bouba Diop 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 struck.


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.

Derby put a great show on and i thought they was actually the better side. The way they played they should get promotion to the Prem. Burley has signed a 1 year contract extention and has done a fantastic job there.

On the Spurs game, Defoe scored two great goals and it was the combination of the ex West Ham players that won it. Carrick setting up one and Kanoute the other. Defoe is definatly the in-form striker in the prem at the moment and i bet some of the big clubs are gutted they never went for him as 6.75 million was a steal.
