FULHAM have it all to do again in north London if they're to see Wembley in the semi-final.
And Zoltan Gera won't know how close he came to winning this quarter-final for the Whites until he sees the replay of 46th minute header that brought the best out of Heurelho Gomes.
The Brazilian keeper flung himself upwards to parry Gera's header from point-blank range over the bar after Bobby Zamora had set up the chance with a deft nod-back from Simon Davies's cross.
Before that, a charged atmosphere at Craven Cottage had little to get worked up about.
The only notable events of the first 45 minutes were Zamora's low right-foot drive from the edge of the box that Gomes dealt with a lot more comfortably, and a downward header from Peter Crouch which Mark Schwarzer palmed away around the far post.
The West London Whites were determined to make it tough for Tottenham, and they pulled every one back behind the ball, for every corner and free-kick inside the last 20 yards, with the busy Zamora spectacularly clearing at the near post from a corner with a bullet header that flew up the pitch.
The in-form striker was also guilty of squandering a decent half-chance when he miscued wide in the last five minutes after running on to a long ball and cutting in from an angle.
But both sides had too much to lose in this game, and despite a last charge from Fulham, they failed to dent Gomes's goal - this time.
