Team News Parker to make 1st start. BAE is back but likely to be on the bench. MATCH FACTS Head-to-head Tottenham hold a 42-26 winning record over Coventry after 90 league and cup matches. Spurs have won the last three, culminating in a 3-0 victory at Highfield Road in the second round of the League Cup in September 2003. Their most notable clash was in the 1987 FA Cup final at Wembley, when an unfortunate own goal from Gary Mabbutt in extra time, gave Sky Blues' managerial duo John Sillett and George Curtis the crowning glory of a 3-2 victory and the silverware for the first and only time. Spurs won both of the only other two FA Cup meetings, in the fifth round in 1981, and in third round in 2002. Tottenham Only two clubs have won the FA Cup more often than Tottenham's eight; Manchester United 11 and Arsenal 10. Only Coventry have beaten them in an FA Cup final. Spurs may not have lifted the trophy since 1991, but the North London side have been semi-finalists in two of the last three seasons. The White Hart Lane club have gone out to fellow Premier League sides in each of the last six seasons, subsequent to Championship Leicester in the third round in 2006, and although held to a goalless draw by Stevenage in the first match in last season's fifth round, have not succumbed to third tier opposition in 25 years since Port Vale in the fourth round in January 1988. Coventry City This tie cannot help but evoke memories of Coventry's greatest day in their history 26 years ago, since when the best achieved has been two quarter-final appearances; 1998 and 2009. Mark Robins has taken the Sky Blues from one off the bottom in mid-September to the top half of the League One table. He will always be remembered for virtually saving Sir Alex Ferguson's job at Manchester United with a winning goal in a vital in a FA Cup third round tie at Nottingham Forest in January 1990. The Red Devils went on to win the cup from there, Ferguson's first piece of silverware at Old Trafford. Coventry are 52 places lower than Tottenham in the league standings, and are one of three third tier clubs trying to oust Premier League opposition, as they did in the fourth round in 2011 when, as a Championship side, they eliminating neighbours Birmingham City.
