Tottenham face League One side Coventry tomorrow as they look to reach their first final since they lifted their eighth cup in 1991.

The Londoners came close to reaching the final last season, but they were undone by a 5-1 semi-final thrashing by Chelsea.

With Spurs having climbed to third in the Barclays Premier League after finding their feet under Andre Villas-Boas, Steffen Freund hopes the squad can transfer their form to the cup.

“We are strong enough now as a club to say maybe it’s time to win the FA Cup again,” Freund added.

“We have a fantastic history in the competition.”

Coventry now sit 11th in League One, 52 places below Spurs in the league ladder, but Freund insists they will not take the opposition lightly.

He said: “I know they lost their last game (against Shrewsbury) but before that they were 10 unbeaten and that is why it will be a really hard game.

“They will come to the Lane with nothing to lose.”
