PAUL Robinson is set for a dramatic recall for Spurs' Carling Cup Final - as predicted in the Ham&High earlier this week - after a man of the match display against Slavia Prague in last night's Uefa Cup 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane.
Robinson, axed by Juande Ramos last month after a series of costly errors, replaced Radek Cerny and pulled off a series of stunning second half saves.
The Lilywhites go through 3-2 on aggregate and now play Dutch side PSV Eindhoven for a place in the last eight.
Rookie midfielder Jamie O'Hara gave Spurs the perfect start when he scored with a deflected shot after only seven minutes. Tottenham dominated the rest of the first half but failed to add to their tally.
