All the action from Saturday's 3-1 win against Southend United in the fourth round of the FA Cup at the Lane.

Ricardo Rocha came on for his debut as Martin Jol made eight changes to the line-up for Saturday's FA Cup fourth round clash. Rocha, Radek Cerny, Paul Stalteri, Lee Young-Pyo, Hossam Ghaly, Jermaine Jenas, Robbie Keane and Mido come in for Anthony Gardner, Paul Robinson, Pascal Chimbonda, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Tom Huddestone, Steed Malbranque, Jermain Defe and Dimitar Berbatov.

Gardner, Malbranque, Huddlestone and Defoe joined goalkeeper Ben Alnwick on the bench.

ALL THE ACTION...

2mins: Flahavan out quickly to pluck ball off Keane's head.

Rocha has started on the left of the central defensive partnership with Dawson, Lennon more centrally, supporting Keane and Mido.

6.05: Jenas whipped in inswinging free-kick from left, Mido beat Flahavan to it but could only guide header over.

8.08: Cerny clean hands as he rose amongst the bodies to collect Hunt's cross.

9.05: Good combination between Mido and Stalteri, Mido dropped deep to win ball, exchanged passes with Stalteri and the full-back was through but for fine challenge by Hammell.

12mins: GOAL - SPURS. Zokora broke from deep, fed in Keane on his right, shot from 16 yards deflected off Hammell to leave Flahavan wrong-footed and beaten.

15.12: CHANCE. Maher released Eastwood down our left, clever cross with outside of right foot picked out Gower at far post, could only volley into ground and Cerny gathered easily.

16.30: CHANCE. Lennon fine pass spread play wide to Ghaly, he skipped past Gower's challenge, reached the byline and cut back for Keane, under pressure, scuffed shot wide.

18mins: BLOCK. Mido did well again, beat his man and spotted Lennon clear on left corner of box, he cut onto his right foot, curler aiming for far corner blocked by Barrett.

19.40: Dawson magnificent crossfield pass over 60 yards from right to left to Lennon, he controlled and crossed low aiming for Keane, would have been a tap in but for sliding intervention from Barrett.

20.20: Another fine break from Stalteri, one-two with Mido sent him through on goal, right channel, delayed shot for a second and that allowed first Barrett to have a nibble and then Flahavan to come out and save at his feet.

25.38: Patient build up, Lee heavily involved, he played into Mido, got it back and then into Keane's feet, quick turn but shot blocked by Clarke and ballooned into Flahavan's hands.

28.06: Dawson spread wide again to Lennon, he played into supporting Lee who hit low shot from 20 yards saved by Flahavan at near post.

30mins: SAVE. Break from our half, Ghaly into Jenas who released Keane down left, rode Barrett's challenge, went to left byline and tried to kid Flahavan at near post, keeper saved with foot.

30.30: Dawson flicked on Lennon's corner for Rocha diving in at far post, got angle of header wrong and it sailed wide of far post.

34.27: Mido climbed well to meet Lennon's corner but could only loop header onto roof of net under pressure.

37.53: Textbook tackle from Rocha to halt Campbell-Ryce burst into box.

38.06: SAVE/WOODWORK. Fantastic reactions from Flahavan, Zokora led break from Southend attack, Ghaly crossed low and Keane flicked ball towards target from six yards, Flahavan managed to tip onto the crossbar and over.

39.09: PENALTY? Keane clever pass to Jenas in box, went over with Barrett, penalty might have been harsh but seen them given.

52.05: SAVE. Straight up the other end, Jenas ran 20 yards before unleashing drive from edge of box that Flahavan tipped over.

57mins: Kept the ball for a long spell that included a dink from Jenas to Keane and backheel not read by Lennon; Jenas shot that was blocked by McCormack and eventually another cross from Jenas that Mido headed towards goal, only for Flahavan to tip over, flagged offside anyway.
